Is Carlyle Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Carlyle Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Carlyle Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Carlyle Group's P/E ratio
Carlyle 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 5x. In other words, Carlyle Group shares trade at around 5x 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.
Carlyle Group's PEG ratio
Carlyle Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.5806. 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 Carlyle 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.
Carlyle Group's EBITDA
Carlyle Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Carlyle Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Carlyle Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 21.06% of net profits
Recently Carlyle Group has paid out, on average, around 21.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Carlyle Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Carlyle Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.15 per share.
While Carlyle Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Carlyle Group is investing more in its future growth.
Carlyle Group's most recent dividend payout was on 15 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Carlyle Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Carlyle Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.41 up to $59.2672. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Carlyle Group's is 1.6636. This would suggest that Carlyle 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).
