Is Garmin stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Garmin's P/E ratio

Garmin's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, Garmin shares trade at around 23x 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.

Garmin's PEG ratio

Garmin's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.6166. 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 Garmin's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Garmin's EBITDA

Garmin's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.4 billion.

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

Garmin share dividends

49%

Dividend payout ratio: 49% of net profits

Recently Garmin has paid out, on average, around 49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Garmin shareholders could enjoy a 1.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Garmin's case, that would currently equate to about $2.92 per share.

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

Garmin's most recent dividend payout was on 27 March 2025. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 September 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Garmin's shares ever split?

Garmin's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 August 2006. 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 Garmin shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Garmin shares which in turn could have impacted Garmin's share price.

Garmin share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Garmin's shares have ranged in value from as little as $98.0863 up to $170.8331. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GRMN.US volatility(beta: 1)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 Garmin's is 0.996. This would suggest that Garmin's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
