Is Blackstone Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Blackstone Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Blackstone Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Blackstone Group's P/E ratio
Blackstone 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 24x. In other words, Blackstone Group shares trade at around 24x 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.
Blackstone Group's PEG ratio
Blackstone Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2672. 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 Blackstone 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.

Blackstone Group's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Blackstone Group.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Blackstone Group's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 29.04
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Blackstone Group's overall score of 29.04 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 57th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Blackstone Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Blackstone Group's environmental score
Environmental score: 0.2/100
Blackstone Group's environmental score of 0.2 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Blackstone Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Blackstone Group's social score
Social score: 12.52/100
Blackstone Group's social score of 12.52 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Blackstone Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Blackstone Group's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Blackstone Group scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Blackstone Group has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary
|Total ESG score||29.04|
|Total ESG percentile||57.36|
|Environmental score percentile||1|
|Social score percentile||1|
|Governance score percentile||1|

Blackstone Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 85.03% of net profits
Recently Blackstone Group has paid out, on average, around 85.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.6% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Blackstone Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Blackstone Group's case, that would currently equate to about $4.94 per share.
Blackstone Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Blackstone Group's most recent dividend payout was on 7 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 October 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Blackstone Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Blackstone Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $71.72 up to $133.6073. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Blackstone Group's is 1.4468. This would suggest that Blackstone 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).
