Is Primerica stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Primerica stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Primerica's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Primerica's P/E ratio
Primerica's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Primerica shares trade at around 14x 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.
Primerica's PEG ratio
Primerica's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.05. 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 Primerica's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Primerica's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $681.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Primerica's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Primerica share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 19.47% of net profits
Recently Primerica has paid out, on average, around 19.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Primerica shareholders could enjoy a 1.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Primerica's case, that would currently equate to about $2.12 per share.
While Primerica's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Primerica is investing more in its future growth.
Primerica's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Primerica share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Primerica's shares have ranged in value from as little as $109.7768 up to $176.7537. 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 Primerica's is 1.2685. This would suggest that Primerica's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
