Is Ross Stores stock undervalued or overvalued?

Ross Stores's P/E ratio

Ross Stores's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Ross Stores shares trade at around 26x 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.

Ross Stores's PEG ratio

Ross Stores's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2913. 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 Ross Stores's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ross Stores's EBITDA

Ross Stores share dividends

24%

Dividend payout ratio: 23.69% of net profits

Recently Ross Stores has paid out, on average, around 23.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ross Stores shareholders could enjoy a 0.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ross Stores's case, that would currently equate to about $1.373 per share.

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

Ross Stores's most recent dividend payout was on 27 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ross Stores's shares ever split?

Ross Stores's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 June 2015. 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 Ross Stores shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ross Stores shares which in turn could have impacted Ross Stores's share price.

Ross Stores share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ross Stores's shares have ranged in value from as little as $107.5316 up to $153.06. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ROST.US volatility(beta: 1.09)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Ross Stores's is 1.086. This would suggest that Ross Stores'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).
