Is Polaris Industries stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Polaris Industries's P/E ratio

Polaris Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Polaris Industries shares trade at around 16x 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.

Polaris Industries's PEG ratio

Polaris Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8326. 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 Polaris Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Polaris Industries's EBITDA

Polaris Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $851.6 million.

Polaris Industries share dividends

32%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.48% of net profits

Recently Polaris Industries has paid out, on average, around 32.48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Polaris Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Polaris Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $2.54 per share.

While Polaris Industries's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Polaris Industries may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Polaris Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Polaris Industries's shares ever split?

Polaris Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 September 2011. 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 Polaris Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Polaris Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Polaris Industries's share price.

Polaris Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Polaris Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $93.1542 up to $129.5662. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PII.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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Polaris Industries's is 1.5585. This would suggest that Polaris Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
