Is TEGNA under- or over-valued?

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

TEGNA's P/E ratio

TEGNA'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, TEGNA 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.

TEGNA's PEG ratio

TEGNA's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9757. 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 TEGNA's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TEGNA's EBITDA

TEGNA's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $960.9 million.

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

TEGNA'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 TEGNA.

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

TEGNA's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 18.11

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and TEGNA's overall score of 18.11 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 10th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

TEGNA's environmental score

Environmental score: 3/100

TEGNA's environmental score of 3 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that TEGNA is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

TEGNA's social score

Social score: 3/100

TEGNA's social score of 3 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that TEGNA is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

TEGNA's governance score

Governance score: 3/100

TEGNA's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that TEGNA is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

TEGNA's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. TEGNA scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that TEGNA has managed to keep its nose clean.

TEGNA share dividends

17%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.19% of net profits

Recently TEGNA has paid out, on average, around 17.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TEGNA shareholders could enjoy a 1.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TEGNA's case, that would currently equate to about $0.355 per share.

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

TEGNA's most recent dividend payout was on 1 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have TEGNA's shares ever split?

TEGNA's shares were split on a 15625:1000 basis on 1 June 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 15625 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your TEGNA shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 93.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for TEGNA shares which in turn could have impacted TEGNA's share price.

TEGNA share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TEGNA's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.2703 up to $22.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TGNA.US volatility(beta: 0.95)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 TEGNA's is 0.9534. This would suggest that TEGNA's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
