Is Westwood Holdings Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Westwood Holdings Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Westwood Holdings Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Westwood Holdings Group's P/E ratio
Westwood Holdings 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 19x. In other words, Westwood Holdings Group shares trade at around 19x 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.

Westwood Holdings Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 108.99% of net profits
Recently Westwood Holdings Group has paid out, on average, around 108.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Westwood Holdings Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Westwood Holdings Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.55 per share.
Westwood Holdings Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Westwood Holdings Group's most recent dividend payout was on 1 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Westwood Holdings Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Westwood Holdings Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10 up to $19.411. 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 Westwood Holdings Group's is 1.0859. This would suggest that Westwood Holdings 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).
