Is The Blackstone Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

The Blackstone Group's P/E ratio

The 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 63x. In other words, The Blackstone Group shares trade at around 63x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

The Blackstone Group's PEG ratio

The Blackstone Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.839. 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 The 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.

The Blackstone Group share dividends

85%

Dividend payout ratio: 85.2% of net profits

Recently The Blackstone Group has paid out, on average, around 85.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Blackstone Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Blackstone Group's case, that would currently equate to about $3.57 per share.

The 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.

The Blackstone Group's most recent dividend payout was on 7 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

The Blackstone Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, The Blackstone Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $61.7428 up to $149.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BX.US volatility(beta: 1.35)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 The Blackstone Group's is 1.3462. This would suggest that The 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).
