Valuing Penske Automotive Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Penske Automotive Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Penske Automotive 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 10x. In other words, Penske Automotive Group shares trade at around 10x 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.
Penske Automotive Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1128. 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 Penske Automotive 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.
Penske Automotive Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$664.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Penske Automotive Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.1 million Penske Automotive Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Penske Automotive Group's "short interest". This figure is 14.3% down from 3.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Penske Automotive Group shares can be evaluated.
Penske Automotive Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Penske Automotive Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Penske Automotive Group shares traded daily (recently around 373882.43727599). Penske Automotive Group's SIR currently stands at 8.37. In other words for every 100,000 Penske Automotive Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8370 shares are currently held short.
However Penske Automotive Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Penske Automotive Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Penske Automotive Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Penske Automotive Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Penske Automotive Group shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0999% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Penske Automotive Group shares, roughly 100 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 Penske Automotive Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 15.22% of net profits
Recently Penske Automotive Group has paid out, on average, around 15.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Penske Automotive Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Penske Automotive Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.68 per share.
While Penske Automotive Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Penske Automotive Group is investing more in its future growth.
Penske Automotive Group's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Penske Automotive Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 June 2006. 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 Penske Automotive Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Penske Automotive Group shares which in turn could have impacted Penske Automotive Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Penske Automotive Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.8376 up to $62.71. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Penske Automotive Group's is 1.7108. This would suggest that Penske Automotive Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
