Is Magna International under- or over-valued?

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

Magna International's P/E ratio

Magna International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Magna International shares trade at around 13x 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.

Magna International's PEG ratio

Magna International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.85. 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 Magna International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Magna International's EBITDA

Magna International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.2 billion.

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

Magna International'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 Magna International.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Magna International's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 21.85

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Magna International's overall score of 21.85 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 29th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Magna International 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.).

Magna International's environmental score

Environmental score: 3.39/100

Magna International's environmental score of 3.39 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Magna International is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Magna International's social score

Social score: 9.45/100

Magna International's social score of 9.45 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Magna International is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Magna International's governance score

Governance score: 6/100

Magna International's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Magna International is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Magna International's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Magna International scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that Magna International has managed to keep its nose clean.

Magna International share dividends

26%

Dividend payout ratio: 25.86% of net profits

Recently Magna International has paid out, on average, around 25.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Magna International shareholders could enjoy a 2.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Magna International's case, that would currently equate to about $1.72 per share.

While Magna International's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Magna International may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Magna International's most recent dividend payout was on 3 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Magna International's shares ever split?

Magna International's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 March 2015. 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 Magna International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Magna International shares which in turn could have impacted Magna International's share price.

Magna International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Magna International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $67.9368 up to $103.2274. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MGA.US volatility(beta: 1.55)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 Magna International's is 1.5535. This would suggest that Magna International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
