Is Rollins under- or over-valued?

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

Rollins's P/E ratio

Rollins's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 51x. In other words, Rollins shares trade at around 51x 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.

Rollins's PEG ratio

Rollins's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.6209. 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 Rollins's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Rollins's EBITDA

Rollins's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $538.9 million.

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

Rollins'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 Rollins.

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

Rollins's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 20.13

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Rollins's overall score of 20.13 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 17th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Rollins's environmental score

Environmental score: 9.88/100

Rollins's environmental score of 9.88 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Rollins is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Rollins's social score

Social score: 1.89/100

Rollins's social score of 1.89 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Rollins is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Rollins's governance score

Governance score: 6.36/100

Rollins's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Rollins is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Rollins share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 55.85% of net profits

Recently Rollins has paid out, on average, around 55.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Rollins shareholders could enjoy a 1.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Rollins's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.

Rollins's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Rollins's most recent dividend payout was on 10 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Rollins's shares ever split?

Rollins's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 11 December 2020. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Rollins shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rollins shares which in turn could have impacted Rollins's share price.

Rollins share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Rollins's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.3278 up to $39.7491. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ROL.US volatility(beta: 0.59)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
