Is RLI stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

RLI's P/E ratio

RLI's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, RLI shares trade at around 19x 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.

RLI's PEG ratio

RLI's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.82. 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 RLI's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


RLI's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $419.6 million.

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

RLI share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.08% of net profits

Recently RLI has paid out, on average, around 21.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), RLI shareholders could enjoy a 0.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In RLI's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.

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

RLI's most recent dividend payout was on 19 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have RLI's shares ever split?

RLI's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 January 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your RLI shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for RLI shares which in turn could have impacted RLI's share price.

RLI share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, RLI's shares have ranged in value from as little as $125.2869 up to $148.8985. 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 RLI's is 0.382. This would suggest that RLI's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
