Is Progressive stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Progressive stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Progressive's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Progressive's P/E ratio
Progressive's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 117x. In other words, Progressive shares trade at around 117x 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.
Progressive's PEG ratio
Progressive's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9148. 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 Progressive's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Progressive's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.7 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Progressive's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$49.6 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||2.8%|
|Gross profit TTM||$1.7 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||1.18%|
|Return on equity TTM||4.23%|
|Market capitalisation||$80.7 billion|

Progressive's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Progressive.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Progressive's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 31.91
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Progressive's overall score of 31.91 (as at 12/31/2018) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 43rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Progressive is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Progressive's environmental score
Environmental score: 7.06/100
Progressive's environmental score of 7.06 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Progressive is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Progressive's social score
Social score: 13.28/100
Progressive's social score of 13.28 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Progressive is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Progressive's governance score
Governance score: 17.57/100
Progressive's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Progressive is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Progressive's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Progressive scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Progressive has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary
|Total ESG score||31.91|
|Total ESG percentile||43.32|
|Environmental score percentile||8|
|Social score percentile||8|
|Governance score percentile||8|
|Level of controversy||2|
Progressive share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 9.78% of net profits
Recently Progressive has paid out, on average, around 9.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Progressive shareholders could enjoy a 0.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Progressive's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
While Progressive's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Progressive is investing more in its future growth.
Progressive's most recent dividend payout was on 12 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Progressive's shares ever split?
Progressive's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 18 May 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Progressive shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Progressive shares which in turn could have impacted Progressive's share price.
Progressive share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Progressive's shares have ranged in value from as little as $100.4768 up to $139.175. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Progressive's is 0.4813. This would suggest that Progressive's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
