Is CDK Global under- or over-valued?

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

CDK Global's P/E ratio

CDK Global's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, CDK Global shares trade at around 5x 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.

CDK Global's PEG ratio

CDK Global's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2. 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 CDK Global's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like CDK Global 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.).

CDK Global share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.14% of net profits

Recently CDK Global has paid out, on average, around 22.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CDK Global shareholders could enjoy a 1.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CDK Global's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

While CDK Global's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that CDK Global is investing more in its future growth.

CDK Global's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
