Is PulteGroup stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing PulteGroup stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PulteGroup's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PulteGroup's P/E ratio
PulteGroup's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, PulteGroup shares trade at around 8x 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.
PulteGroup's PEG ratio
PulteGroup's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4961. 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 PulteGroup's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
PulteGroup's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.3 billion.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like PulteGroup is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

PulteGroup share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 9.03% of net profits
Recently PulteGroup has paid out, on average, around 9.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PulteGroup shareholders could enjoy a 1.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PulteGroup's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.
While PulteGroup's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that PulteGroup is investing more in its future growth.
PulteGroup's most recent dividend payout was on 3 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have PulteGroup's shares ever split?
PulteGroup's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 September 2005. 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 PulteGroup shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PulteGroup shares which in turn could have impacted PulteGroup's share price.
PulteGroup share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, PulteGroup's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.2034 up to $63.3864. 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 PulteGroup's is 1.4435. This would suggest that PulteGroup's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
