Is Guild Holdings Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Guild Holdings Company's P/E ratio

Guild Holdings Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, Guild Holdings Company shares trade at around 34x 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.

However, Guild Holdings Company's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the mortgage finance industry or those of similar companies.

Guild Holdings Company's EBITDA

Guild Holdings Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $131.9 million.

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

To put Guild Holdings Company's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

Guild Holdings Company share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 104.17% of net profits

Recently Guild Holdings Company has paid out, on average, around 104.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Guild Holdings Company shareholders could enjoy a 4.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Guild Holdings Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

Guild Holdings Company'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.

Guild Holdings Company's most recent dividend payout was on 5 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Guild Holdings Company's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

Guild Holdings Company share price volatility

GHLD.US volatility(beta: 1.06)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 Guild Holdings Company's is 1.064. This would suggest that Guild Holdings Company's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

To put Guild Holdings Company's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
