Is PulteGroup under- or over-valued?

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

PulteGroup's P/E ratio

PulteGroup's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, PulteGroup shares trade at around 5x 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.

PulteGroup's PEG ratio

PulteGroup's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4961. 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 PulteGroup's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

PulteGroup's EBITDA

PulteGroup's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.8 billion.

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

PulteGroup'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 PulteGroup.

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

PulteGroup's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 18.07

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and PulteGroup's overall score of 18.07 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 24th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

PulteGroup's environmental score

Environmental score: 4.6/100

PulteGroup's social score

Social score: 5.08/100

PulteGroup's governance score

Governance score: 0.39/100

PulteGroup's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. PulteGroup scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that PulteGroup has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

PulteGroup share dividends

7%

Dividend payout ratio: 7.49% of net profits

Recently PulteGroup has paid out, on average, around 7.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PulteGroup shareholders could enjoy a 1.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PulteGroup's case, that would currently equate to about $0.57 per share.

While PulteGroup's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that PulteGroup is investing more in its future growth.

PulteGroup's most recent dividend payout was on 5 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have PulteGroup's shares ever split?

PulteGroup's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 September 2005. 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 PulteGroup shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PulteGroup shares which in turn could have impacted PulteGroup's share price.

PulteGroup share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PulteGroup's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.61 up to $58.1638. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PHM.US volatility(beta: 1.42)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 PulteGroup's is 1.4235. This would suggest that PulteGroup's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
