Is Macys under- or over-valued?
Valuing Macys stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Macys's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Macys's P/E ratio
Macys's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Macys shares trade at around 10x 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.
Macys's PEG ratio
Macys's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9128. 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 Macys's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Macys's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Macys's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Macys's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Macys.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Macys's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 15.46
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Macys's overall score of 15.46 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Macys is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Macys's environmental score
Environmental score: 6.11/100
Macys's environmental score of 6.11 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Macys is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Macys's social score
Social score: 9.73/100
Macys's social score of 9.73 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Macys is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Macys's governance score
Governance score: 7.13/100
Macys's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Macys is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Macys's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Macys scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Macys has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Macys share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 7.25% of net profits
Recently Macys has paid out, on average, around 7.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Macys shareholders could enjoy a 2.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Macys's case, that would currently equate to about $0.15 per share.
While Macys's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Macys is investing more in its future growth.
Macys's most recent dividend payout was on 3 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Macys's shares ever split?
Macys's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 June 2006. 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 Macys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Macys shares which in turn could have impacted Macys's share price.
Macys share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Macys's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.843 up to $37.7218. 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 Macys's is 2.0588. This would suggest that Macys's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
