Is Elbit Systems under- or over-valued?

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

Elbit Systems's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Elbit Systems shares trade at around 22x 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.

Elbit Systems's PEG ratio

Elbit Systems's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.21. 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 Elbit Systems's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Elbit Systems's EBITDA

Elbit Systems's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $518.8 million.

Elbit Systems share dividends

24%

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Elbit Systems shareholders could enjoy a 1.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Elbit Systems's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.

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