Is Sinclair Broadcast Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Sinclair Broadcast Group's P/E ratio

Sinclair Broadcast 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 1x. In other words, Sinclair Broadcast Group shares trade at around 1x 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.

Sinclair Broadcast Group's PEG ratio

Sinclair Broadcast Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8868. 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 Sinclair Broadcast 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.

Sinclair Broadcast Group's EBITDA

Sinclair Broadcast Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $957 million.

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

Sinclair Broadcast Group share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.77% of net profits

Recently Sinclair Broadcast Group has paid out, on average, around 2.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sinclair Broadcast Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sinclair Broadcast Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.

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

Sinclair Broadcast Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sinclair Broadcast Group's shares ever split?

Sinclair Broadcast Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 May 1998. 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 Sinclair Broadcast Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sinclair Broadcast Group shares which in turn could have impacted Sinclair Broadcast Group's share price.

Sinclair Broadcast Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sinclair Broadcast Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.6811 up to $31.7011. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SBGI.US volatility(beta: 1.28)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 Sinclair Broadcast Group's is 1.2765. This would suggest that Sinclair Broadcast 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).
