Is Unum Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Unum Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Unum Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Unum Group's P/E ratio
Unum 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 7x. In other words, Unum Group shares trade at around 7x 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.
Unum Group's PEG ratio
Unum Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5. 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 Unum 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.
Unum Group's EBITDA
Unum Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Unum Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Unum Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 19.72% of net profits
Recently Unum Group has paid out, on average, around 19.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Unum Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Unum Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.
While Unum Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Unum Group is investing more in its future growth.
Unum Group's most recent dividend payout was on 17 August 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 July 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Unum Group's shares ever split?
Unum Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 June 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Unum Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Unum Group shares which in turn could have impacted Unum Group's share price.
Unum Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Unum Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.7047 up to $51.15. 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 Unum Group's is 1.0681. This would suggest that Unum Group's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
