Is The Blackstone Group under- or over-valued?

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

The Blackstone Group's P/E ratio

The Blackstone 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 73x. In other words, The Blackstone Group shares trade at around 73x 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.

The Blackstone Group's PEG ratio

The Blackstone Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9413. 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 The Blackstone Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

The Blackstone Group'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 The Blackstone Group.

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

The Blackstone Group's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 29.04

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and The Blackstone Group's overall score of 29.04 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 57th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

The Blackstone Group's environmental score

Environmental score: 0.2/100

The Blackstone Group's environmental score of 0.2 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that The Blackstone Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

The Blackstone Group's social score

Social score: 12.52/100

The Blackstone Group's social score of 12.52 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that The Blackstone Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

The Blackstone Group's governance score

Governance score: 15.21/100

The Blackstone Group's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that The Blackstone Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

The Blackstone Group's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

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

The Blackstone Group share dividends

85%

Dividend payout ratio: 85.2% of net profits

Recently The Blackstone Group has paid out, on average, around 85.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Blackstone Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Blackstone Group's case, that would currently equate to about $3.57 per share.

The Blackstone Group'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.

The Blackstone Group's most recent dividend payout was on 8 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

The Blackstone Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, The Blackstone Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $59.0628 up to $149.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BX.US volatility(beta: 1.39)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 The Blackstone Group's is 1.3896. This would suggest that The Blackstone Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
