Is Premier stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Premier's P/E ratio

Premier's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Premier shares trade at around 18x 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.

Premier's PEG ratio

Premier's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6295. 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 Premier's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Premier's EBITDA

Premier's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $412.8 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Premier's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Premier share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 30.83% of net profits

Recently Premier has paid out, on average, around 30.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Premier shareholders could enjoy a 2.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Premier's case, that would currently equate to about $0.77 per share.

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

Premier's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Premier share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Premier's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.9193 up to $41.931. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Premier's is 0.256. This would suggest that Premier's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
