Is Sunlands Technology Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Sunlands Technology Group's P/E ratio

Sunlands Technology 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, Sunlands Technology 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.

Sunlands Technology Group's EBITDA

Sunlands Technology Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $498.8 million.

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

Sunlands Technology Group share dividends

22%

Dividend payout ratio: 22.14% of net profits

Recently Sunlands Technology Group has paid out, on average, around 22.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 12.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sunlands Technology Group shareholders could enjoy a 12.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sunlands Technology Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

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

Sunlands Technology Group's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sunlands Technology Group's shares ever split?

Sunlands Technology Group's shares were split on a 8:100 basis on 31 August 2021. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 8 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sunlands Technology Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1150% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sunlands Technology Group shares which in turn could have impacted Sunlands Technology Group's share price.

Sunlands Technology Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sunlands Technology Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.16 up to $7. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

STG.US volatility(beta: 1.29)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 Sunlands Technology Group's is 1.2854. This would suggest that Sunlands Technology 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).
