Is Radian Group under- or over-valued?

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

Radian Group's P/E ratio

Radian 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 12x. In other words, Radian Group shares trade at around 12x 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.

Radian Group's PEG ratio

Radian Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.18. 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 Radian 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.

Radian Group's EBITDA

Radian Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $622.3 million.

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

Shorting Radian Group shares

There are currently 16.3 million Radian Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Radian Group's "short interest". This figure is 23% up from 13.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Radian Group shares can be evaluated.

Radian Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Radian Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Radian Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Radian Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Radian Group's SIR currently stands at 10.3. In other words for every 100,000 Radian Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10300 shares are currently held short.

However Radian Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Radian Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Radian Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Radian Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Radian Group shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0856% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Radian Group shares, roughly 86 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Radian Group.

Radian Group share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 29.07% of net profits

Recently Radian Group has paid out, on average, around 29.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Radian Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Radian Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

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

Radian Group's most recent dividend payout was on 3 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Radian Group's shares ever split?

Radian Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 June 2001. 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 Radian Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Radian Group shares which in turn could have impacted Radian Group's share price.

Radian Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Radian Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.0566 up to $24.89. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RDN.US volatility(beta: 1.5)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 Radian Group's is 1.4981. This would suggest that Radian 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).
