Is Ruths Hospitality Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Ruths Hospitality 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.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ruths Hospitality Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ruths Hospitality Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ruths Hospitality Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 6.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ruths Hospitality Group shares which in turn could have impacted Ruths Hospitality Group's share price.
