Is Stagecoach Group under- or over-valued?

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

Stagecoach Group's P/E ratio

Stagecoach Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Stagecoach Group stocks trade at around 14x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the stocks or simply that they're under-valued.

Stagecoach Group's PEG ratio

Stagecoach Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 14.3832. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Stagecoach Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Stagecoach Group's EBITDA

Stagecoach Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £126.4 million.

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

Have Stagecoach Group stocks ever split?

Stagecoach Group stocks were split on a 4:5 basis on 10 October 2011. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Stagecoach Group stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Stagecoach Group stocks which in turn could have impacted Stagecoach Group's stock price.

Stagecoach Group stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Stagecoach Group's stocks have ranged in value from as little as 35p up to 110.9p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SGC.LSE volatility(beta: 2)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while Stagecoach Group's is 1.9971. This would suggest that Stagecoach Group's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
