Is Wingstop stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Wingstop's P/E ratio

Wingstop's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 133x. In other words, Wingstop shares trade at around 133x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Wingstop's PEG ratio

Wingstop's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.5044. 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 Wingstop's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Wingstop's EBITDA

Wingstop's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $145.7 million.

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

Wingstop share dividends

31%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.56% of net profits

Recently Wingstop has paid out, on average, around 30.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wingstop shareholders could enjoy a 0.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wingstop's case, that would currently equate to about $0.85 per share.

While Wingstop's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Wingstop may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Wingstop's most recent dividend payout was on 6 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Wingstop share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Wingstop's shares have ranged in value from as little as $149.7588 up to $431.034. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WING.US volatility(beta: 1.67)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 Wingstop's is 1.669. This would suggest that Wingstop's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
