Is Dycom Industries under- or over-valued?

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

Dycom Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 69x. In other words, Dycom Industries shares trade at around 69x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Dycom Industries's PEG ratio

Dycom Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.58. 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 Dycom Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dycom Industries's EBITDA

Have Dycom Industries's shares ever split?

Dycom Industries's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 16 February 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dycom Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dycom Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Dycom Industries's share price.

This would suggest that Dycom Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
