Is TrueBlue stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing TrueBlue stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of TrueBlue's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
TrueBlue's P/E ratio
TrueBlue's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, TrueBlue shares trade at around 12x 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.
TrueBlue's PEG ratio
TrueBlue's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4. 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 TrueBlue's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
TrueBlue's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $79.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a TrueBlue's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$2.2 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||2.35%|
|Gross profit TTM||$602.1 million|
|Return on assets TTM||3.29%|
|Return on equity TTM||10.15%|
|Market capitalisation||$529.3 million|
TTM: trailing 12 months
TrueBlue share dividends
We're not expecting TrueBlue to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have TrueBlue's shares ever split?
TrueBlue's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 13 July 1999. 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 TrueBlue shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for TrueBlue shares which in turn could have impacted TrueBlue's share price.
TrueBlue share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, TrueBlue's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.2 up to $22.75. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while TrueBlue's is 1.4419. This would suggest that TrueBlue's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
