Is Brinks Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Brinks Company's P/E ratio

Brinks Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Brinks Company shares trade at around 18x 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.

Brinks Company's PEG ratio

Brinks Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.83. 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 Brinks Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Brinks Company's EBITDA

Brinks Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $559.6 million.

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

Brinks Company share dividends

16%

Dividend payout ratio: 15.53% of net profits

Recently Brinks Company has paid out, on average, around 15.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brinks Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brinks Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

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

Brinks Company's most recent dividend payout was on 31 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Brinks Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Brinks Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $53.536 up to $79.6843. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BCO.US volatility(beta: 1.48)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 Brinks Company's is 1.4846. This would suggest that Brinks Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
