Is Select Medical stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Select Medical's P/E ratio

Select Medical's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Select Medical shares trade at around 15x 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.

Select Medical's PEG ratio

Select Medical's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.37. 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 Select Medical's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Select Medical's EBITDA

Select Medical's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $630.1 million.

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

Select Medical share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 28.74% of net profits

Recently Select Medical has paid out, on average, around 28.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Select Medical shareholders could enjoy a 1.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Select Medical's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

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

Select Medical's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Select Medical share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Select Medical's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.1666 up to $36.4057. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SEM.US volatility(beta: 1.35)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 Select Medical's is 1.3468. This would suggest that Select Medical's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
