Is Graham Holdings Company under- or over-valued?

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

Graham Holdings Company's P/E ratio

Graham Holdings Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Graham Holdings Company shares trade at around 6x 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.

Graham Holdings Company's EBITDA

Graham Holdings Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $356.3 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Graham Holdings Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Graham Holdings Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 12.29% of net profits

Recently Graham Holdings Company has paid out, on average, around 12.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Graham Holdings Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Graham Holdings Company's case, that would currently equate to about $5.98 per share.

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

Graham Holdings Company's most recent dividend payout was on 3 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Graham Holdings Company's shares ever split?

Graham Holdings Company's shares were split on a 1655:1000 basis on 30 June 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1655 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Graham Holdings Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 39.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Graham Holdings Company shares which in turn could have impacted Graham Holdings Company's share price.

Graham Holdings Company share price volatility

GHC.US volatility(beta: 1.13)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Graham Holdings Company's is 1.1252. This would suggest that Graham Holdings Company'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).
