Is Selective Insurance Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Selective Insurance Group's P/E ratio

Selective Insurance 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 25x. In other words, Selective Insurance Group shares trade at around 25x 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.

Selective Insurance Group's PEG ratio

Selective Insurance Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.86. 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 Selective Insurance 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.

Selective Insurance Group's EBITDA

Selective Insurance Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $373.8 million.

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

Selective Insurance Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.22% of net profits

Recently Selective Insurance Group has paid out, on average, around 22.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Selective Insurance Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Selective Insurance Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.12 per share.

While Selective Insurance Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Selective Insurance Group is investing more in its future growth.

Selective Insurance Group's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Selective Insurance Group's shares ever split?

Selective Insurance Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 February 2007. 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 Selective Insurance Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Selective Insurance Group shares which in turn could have impacted Selective Insurance Group's share price.

Selective Insurance Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Selective Insurance Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $66.364 up to $98.4833. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SIGI.US volatility(beta: 0.63)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Selective Insurance Group's is 0.6324. This would suggest that Selective Insurance Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
