Is Navient stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Navient stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Navient's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Navient's P/E ratio

Navient's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Navient shares trade at around 3x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Navient's PEG ratio

Navient's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.142. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Navient's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Navient share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 20.19% of net profits

Recently Navient has paid out, on average, around 20.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Navient shareholders could enjoy a 4.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Navient's case, that would currently equate to about $0.64 per share.

While Navient's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Navient is investing more in its future growth.

Navient's most recent dividend payout was on 16 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Navient share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Navient's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.0934 up to $19.1683. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NAVI.US volatility(beta: 1.56)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Navient's is 1.5623. This would suggest that Navient's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
