Is Omnicom Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Omnicom Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Omnicom Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Omnicom Group's P/E ratio
Omnicom Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Omnicom Group shares trade at around 12x 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.
Omnicom Group's PEG ratio
Omnicom Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0621. 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 Omnicom Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Omnicom Group's EBITDA
Omnicom Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Omnicom Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Omnicom Group shares
There are currently 11.4 million Omnicom Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Omnicom Group's "short interest". This figure is 7.8% up from 10.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Omnicom Group shares can be evaluated.
Omnicom Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Omnicom Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Omnicom Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Omnicom Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Omnicom Group's SIR currently stands at 9.04. In other words for every 100,000 Omnicom Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9040 shares are currently held short.
However Omnicom Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Omnicom Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Omnicom Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Omnicom Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Omnicom Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0534% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Omnicom Group shares, roughly 53 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Omnicom Group.

Omnicom Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 46.72% of net profits
Recently Omnicom Group has paid out, on average, around 46.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Omnicom Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Omnicom Group's case, that would currently equate to about $2.7 per share.
While Omnicom Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Omnicom Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Omnicom Group's most recent dividend payout was on 11 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Omnicom Group's shares ever split?
Omnicom Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 June 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Omnicom Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Omnicom Group shares which in turn could have impacted Omnicom Group's share price.
Omnicom Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Omnicom Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $43.2784 up to $85.6562. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
