Is Avis Budget Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Avis Budget Group's P/E ratio

Avis Budget 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 3x. In other words, Avis Budget Group shares trade at around 3x 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.

Avis Budget Group's PEG ratio

Avis Budget Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.76. 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 Avis Budget 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.

Avis Budget Group's EBITDA

Avis Budget Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.7 billion.

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

Avis Budget Group share dividends

32%

Dividend payout ratio: 31.57% of net profits

Recently Avis Budget Group has paid out, on average, around 31.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Avis Budget Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Avis Budget Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

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

Avis Budget Group's most recent dividend payout was on 20 December 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Avis Budget Group's shares ever split?

Avis Budget Group's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 4 September 2006. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Avis Budget Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Avis Budget Group shares which in turn could have impacted Avis Budget Group's share price.

Avis Budget Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Avis Budget Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $93.53 up to $223.8833. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CAR.US volatility(beta: 2.21)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 Avis Budget Group's is 2.205. This would suggest that Avis Budget Group's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
