Is Saia stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Saia stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Saia's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Saia's P/E ratio
Saia's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Saia shares trade at around 21x 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.
Saia's PEG ratio
Saia's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.68. 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 Saia's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Saia's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $626.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Saia's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$2.8 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||16.7%|
|Gross profit TTM||$748.2 million|
|Return on assets TTM||13.96%|
|Return on equity TTM||24.07%|
|Market capitalisation||$7.5 billion|
TTM: trailing 12 months
Saia share dividends
We're not expecting Saia to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Saia's shares ever split?
Saia's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 14 June 2013. 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 Saia shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Saia shares which in turn could have impacted Saia's share price.
Saia share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Saia's shares have ranged in value from as little as $168.03 up to $306.4. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Saia's is 1.5134. This would suggest that Saia's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
