Is Equitable under- or over-valued?
Valuing Equitable stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Equitable's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Equitable's P/E ratio
Equitable's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Equitable shares trade at around 7x 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.
Equitable's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $5.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Equitable's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$16.1 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||30.72%|
|Gross profit TTM||$4.5 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||1.12%|
|Return on equity TTM||18.09%|
|Market capitalisation||$10.6 billion|
TTM: trailing 12 months
Equitable share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 10.88% of net profits
Recently Equitable has paid out, on average, around 10.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Equitable shareholders could enjoy a 2.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Equitable's case, that would currently equate to about $0.55 per share.
While Equitable's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Equitable is investing more in its future growth.
Equitable's most recent dividend payout was on 7 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Equitable share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Equitable's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.73 up to $36.9205. 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 Equitable's is 1.4908. This would suggest that Equitable's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
