Is AutoZone stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing AutoZone stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AutoZone's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AutoZone's P/E ratio
AutoZone'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, AutoZone 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.
AutoZone's PEG ratio
AutoZone's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3728. 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 AutoZone's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
AutoZone's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.7 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a AutoZone's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$16.9 billion|
|Gross profit TTM||$8.5 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||13.85%|
|Return on equity TTM||0%|
|Market capitalisation||$43.4 billion|

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and AutoZone's overall score of 7.49 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like AutoZone 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.).

AutoZone share dividends
We're not expecting AutoZone to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have AutoZone's shares ever split?
AutoZone's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 April 1994. 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 AutoZone shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AutoZone shares which in turn could have impacted AutoZone's share price.
AutoZone share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, AutoZone's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1959.58 up to $2750. 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 AutoZone's is 0.678. This would suggest that AutoZone's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
