Is ManpowerGroup under- or over-valued?
Valuing ManpowerGroup stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ManpowerGroup's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ManpowerGroup's P/E ratio
ManpowerGroup's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, ManpowerGroup shares trade at around 18x 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.
ManpowerGroup's PEG ratio
ManpowerGroup's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1092. 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 ManpowerGroup's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ManpowerGroup's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $645.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ManpowerGroup's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$20.4 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||2.82%|
|Gross profit TTM||$2.8 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||3.91%|
|Return on equity TTM||13.66%|
|Market capitalisation||$5.9 billion|

ManpowerGroup'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 ManpowerGroup.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
ManpowerGroup's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 16.24
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and ManpowerGroup's overall score of 16.24 (as at 12/31/2018) 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 ManpowerGroup 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.).
ManpowerGroup's environmental score
Environmental score: 1.57/100
ManpowerGroup's environmental score of 1.57 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ManpowerGroup is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
ManpowerGroup's social score
Social score: 10.57/100
ManpowerGroup's social score of 10.57 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ManpowerGroup is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
ManpowerGroup's governance score
Governance score: 4.59/100
ManpowerGroup's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that ManpowerGroup is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
ManpowerGroup's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. ManpowerGroup scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that ManpowerGroup has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
ManpowerGroup share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 39.5% of net profits
Recently ManpowerGroup has paid out, on average, around 39.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ManpowerGroup shareholders could enjoy a 2.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ManpowerGroup's case, that would currently equate to about $2.43 per share.
While ManpowerGroup's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ManpowerGroup may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
ManpowerGroup's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
ManpowerGroup share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, ManpowerGroup's shares have ranged in value from as little as $83.9419 up to $122.8866. 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 ManpowerGroup's is 2.0274. This would suggest that ManpowerGroup's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
