Is Credit Acceptance Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Credit Acceptance Corporation's P/E ratio

Credit Acceptance Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Credit Acceptance Corporation shares trade at around 11x 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.

Credit Acceptance Corporation's PEG ratio

Credit Acceptance Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.154. 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 Credit Acceptance Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

We're not expecting Credit Acceptance Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Credit Acceptance Corporation's shares ever split?

Credit Acceptance Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 December 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 Credit Acceptance Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Credit Acceptance Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Credit Acceptance Corporation's share price.

Credit Acceptance Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Credit Acceptance Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $322.3415 up to $703.27. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CACC.US volatility(beta: 1.17)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Credit Acceptance Corporation's is 1.1703. This would suggest that Credit Acceptance Corporation'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).
