Is Marriott International under- or over-valued?

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

Marriott International's P/E ratio

Marriott 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 239x. In other words, Marriott International shares trade at around 239x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Marriott International's PEG ratio

Marriott International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.7533. 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 Marriott 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.

Marriott International's EBITDA

Marriott International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.1 billion.

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

  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "MAR.US"

There are currently 6.7 million Marriott International shares held short by investors – that's known as Marriott International's "short interest". This figure is 16.1% down from 8.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Marriott International shares can be evaluated.

Marriott International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Marriott International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Marriott International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Marriott International shares traded daily (recently around 3.6 million). Marriott International's SIR currently stands at 1.86. In other words for every 100,000 Marriott International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1860 shares are currently held short.

However Marriott International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Marriott International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Marriott International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Marriott International's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Marriott International shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0261% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Marriott International shares, roughly 26 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Marriott International.

Marriott 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 Marriott International.

Total ESG risk: 22.45

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Marriott International's overall score of 22.45 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 36th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Marriott International share dividends

38%

Dividend payout ratio: 38.4% of net profits

Recently Marriott International has paid out, on average, around 38.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Marriott International shareholders could enjoy a 2.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Marriott International's case, that would currently equate to about $1.92 per share.

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

Marriott International's most recent dividend payout was on 31 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Marriott International's shares ever split?

Marriott International's shares were split on a 1061:1000 basis on 22 November 2011. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1061 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Marriott International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Marriott International shares which in turn could have impacted Marriott International's share price.

Marriott International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Marriott International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $46.5622 up to $152.7774. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MAR.US volatility(beta: 1.84)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Marriott International's is 1.8399. This would suggest that Marriott 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).
