Is IAA under- or over-valued?

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

IAA's P/E ratio

IAA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, IAA shares trade at around 16x 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.


IAA's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $540.4 million.

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

IAA share dividends

We're not expecting IAA to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

IAA share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, IAA's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.32 up to $63.49. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IAA.US volatility(beta: 1.7)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 IAA's is 1.699. This would suggest that IAA's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
