Is Guess under- or over-valued?

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

Guess's P/E ratio

Guess's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Guess shares trade at around 8x 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.

Guess's PEG ratio

Guess's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.14. 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 Guess's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Guess's EBITDA

Guess's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $292.6 million.

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

Guess share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 23.34% of net profits

Recently Guess has paid out, on average, around 23.34% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.36% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Guess shareholders could enjoy a 4.36% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Guess's case, that would currently equate to about $0.45 per share.

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

Guess's most recent dividend payout was on 23 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Guess's shares ever split?

Guess's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 March 2007. 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 Guess shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Guess shares which in turn could have impacted Guess's share price.

Guess share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Guess's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.3797 up to $30.5592. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GES.US volatility(beta: 2.13)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 Guess's is 2.1338. This would suggest that Guess's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
