Is Selective Insurance Group under- or over-valued?

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 12x. In other words, Selective Insurance 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.

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 $620.5 million.

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

Shorting Selective Insurance Group shares

There are currently 702,522 Selective Insurance Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Selective Insurance Group's "short interest". This figure is 18.7% down from 863,994 last month.

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

Selective Insurance Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Selective Insurance Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Selective Insurance Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Selective Insurance Group shares traded daily (recently around 262135.07462687). Selective Insurance Group's SIR currently stands at 2.68. In other words for every 100,000 Selective Insurance Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2680 shares are currently held short.

However Selective Insurance Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Selective Insurance Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Selective Insurance Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Selective Insurance Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Selective Insurance Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0119% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Selective Insurance Group shares, roughly 12 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Selective Insurance Group.

Selective Insurance Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.74% of net profits

Recently Selective Insurance Group has paid out, on average, around 21.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.25% 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 1.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Selective Insurance Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.98 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 31 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2021 (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
