Is Summit Materials stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Summit Materials's P/E ratio

Summit Materials's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Summit Materials shares trade at around 16x 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.

Summit Materials's PEG ratio

Summit Materials's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4436. 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 Summit Materials's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Summit Materials's EBITDA

Summit Materials's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $640.2 million.

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

Have Summit Materials's shares ever split?

Summit Materials's shares were split on a 1017:1000 basis on 13 December 2022. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1017 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Summit Materials shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Summit Materials shares which in turn could have impacted Summit Materials's share price.

Summit Materials share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Summit Materials's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.98 up to $44.8935. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SUM.US volatility(beta: 1.15)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 Summit Materials's is 1.152. This would suggest that Summit Materials'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).
