Is Marcus Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Marcus Corporation's P/E ratio

Marcus Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 461x. In other words, Marcus Corporation shares trade at around 461x 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.

Marcus Corporation's PEG ratio

Marcus Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 21.4. 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 Marcus Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Marcus Corporation's EBITDA

Marcus Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $93.1 million.

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

Marcus Corporation share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.5% of net profits

Recently Marcus Corporation has paid out, on average, around 2.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.32% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Marcus Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.32% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Marcus Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.05 per share.

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

Marcus Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Marcus Corporation's shares ever split?

Marcus Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 7 December 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Marcus Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Marcus Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Marcus Corporation's share price.

Marcus Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Marcus Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.3275 up to $19.1216. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MCS.US volatility(beta: 1.59)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 Marcus Corporation's is 1.587. This would suggest that Marcus Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
