Is Safety Insurance Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Safety Insurance Group's P/E ratio

Safety Insurance 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 22x. In other words, Safety Insurance Group shares trade at around 22x 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.

Safety Insurance Group's PEG ratio

Safety Insurance Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.31. 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 Safety Insurance 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.

Safety Insurance Group's EBITDA

Safety Insurance Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $73.6 million.

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

Safety Insurance Group share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 118.03% of net profits

Recently Safety Insurance Group has paid out, on average, around 118.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Safety Insurance Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Safety Insurance Group's case, that would currently equate to about $3.6 per share.

Safety Insurance 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.

Safety Insurance Group's most recent dividend payout was on 13 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Safety Insurance Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Safety Insurance Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $62.9402 up to $86.7273. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Safety Insurance Group's is 0.156. This would suggest that Safety Insurance Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
