Is Meritor under- or over-valued?

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

Meritor's P/E ratio

Meritor'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, Meritor 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.

Meritor's PEG ratio

Meritor's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.69. 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 Meritor's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Meritor's EBITDA

Meritor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $311 million.

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

Meritor share dividends

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

Have Meritor's shares ever split?

Meritor's shares were split on a 9997:13329 basis on 10 July 2000. So if you had owned 13329 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 9997 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Meritor shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Meritor shares which in turn could have impacted Meritor's share price.

Meritor share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Meritor's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.5 up to $33.56. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MTOR.US volatility(beta: 2.02)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 Meritor's is 2.0167. This would suggest that Meritor's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
