Is The Carlyle Group under- or over-valued?

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

The Carlyle Group's P/E ratio

The 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 8x. In other words, The Carlyle Group shares trade at around 8x 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.

The Carlyle Group's PEG ratio

The Carlyle Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1822. 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 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.

The Carlyle Group's EBITDA

The Carlyle Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.8 billion.

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

Shorting The Carlyle Group shares

There are currently 12.8 million The Carlyle Group shares held short by investors – that's known as The Carlyle Group's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% down from 13.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting The Carlyle Group shares can be evaluated.

The Carlyle Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The Carlyle Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Carlyle Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Carlyle Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). The Carlyle Group's SIR currently stands at 6.68. In other words for every 100,000 The Carlyle Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6680 shares are currently held short.

However The Carlyle Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Carlyle Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Carlyle Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Carlyle Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Carlyle Group shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0779% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Carlyle Group shares, roughly 78 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against The Carlyle Group.

The Carlyle Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 40% of net profits

Recently The Carlyle Group has paid out, on average, around 40% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Carlyle Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Carlyle Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.

While The Carlyle Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that The Carlyle Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

The Carlyle Group's most recent dividend payout was on 16 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

The Carlyle Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, The Carlyle Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.785 up to $55.22. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CG.US volatility(beta: 1.37)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while The Carlyle Group's is 1.3698. This would suggest that The 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).
