Is Vail Resorts stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Vail Resorts's P/E ratio

Vail Resorts's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Vail Resorts shares trade at around 24x 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.

Vail Resorts's PEG ratio

Vail Resorts's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2. 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 Vail Resorts's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Vail Resorts's EBITDA

Vail Resorts's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $846.7 million.

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

Vail Resorts share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 116.46% of net profits

Recently Vail Resorts has paid out, on average, around 116.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vail Resorts shareholders could enjoy a 4.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vail Resorts's case, that would currently equate to about $8.4 per share.

Vail Resorts'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.

Vail Resorts's most recent dividend payout was on 9 July 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Vail Resorts's shares were split on 5 November 2008.

Vail Resorts share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Vail Resorts's shares have ranged in value from as little as $163.1211 up to $244.408. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MTN.US volatility(beta: 1.14)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 Vail Resorts's is 1.138. This would suggest that Vail Resorts'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).
