Is Asbury Automotive Group under- or over-valued?

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

Asbury Automotive Group's P/E ratio

Asbury Automotive 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 14x. In other words, Asbury Automotive Group shares trade at around 14x 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.

Asbury Automotive Group's PEG ratio

Asbury Automotive Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3033. 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 Asbury Automotive 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.

Asbury Automotive Group's EBITDA

Asbury Automotive Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $726.9 million.

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

Asbury Automotive Group's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 16 June 2009. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Asbury Automotive Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Asbury Automotive Group shares which in turn could have impacted Asbury Automotive Group's share price.

Asbury Automotive Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Asbury Automotive Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $137.9638 up to $230.97. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Asbury Automotive 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).
