Is StepStone Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

StepStone Group's P/E ratio

StepStone 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 6x. In other words, StepStone Group shares trade at around 6x 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.

However, StepStone Group's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the asset management industry or those of similar companies.

StepStone Group's EBITDA

StepStone Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $529.7 million.

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

To put StepStone Group's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

StepStone Group share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 26.87% of net profits

Recently StepStone Group has paid out, on average, around 26.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), StepStone Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In StepStone Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.21 per share.

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

StepStone Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

StepStone Group's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
