Is it a good time to buy Admiral Group stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Admiral Group under- or over-valued?

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

Admiral Group's P/E ratio

Admiral 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 18x. In other words, Admiral Group shares trade at around 18x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

However, Admiral Group's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the insurance-property & casualty industry or those of similar companies.

Admiral Group's PEG ratio

Admiral Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7122. 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 Admiral 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.

However, it's sensible to consider Admiral Group's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Admiral Group's EBITDA

Admiral Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £623.5 million.

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

To put Admiral Group's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

Admiral Group's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Admiral Group.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Admiral Group's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 25.17

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Admiral Group's overall score of 25.17 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 34th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Admiral Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

To gain some more context, you can compare Admiral Group's total ESG risk score against those of similar companies.

Admiral Group's environmental score

Environmental score: 3.88/100

Admiral Group's environmental score of 3.88 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Admiral Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Admiral Group's social score

Social score: 11.27/100

Admiral Group's social score of 11.27 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Admiral Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Admiral Group's governance score

Governance score: 17.02/100

Admiral Group's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Admiral Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Admiral Group's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, Admiral Group scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that Admiral Group has managed to keep its nose clean.

Wondering how that compares? Below are the controversy scores of similar companies.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Admiral Group plc was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Admiral Group share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 6625% of net profits

Recently Admiral Group has paid out, on average, around 6625% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Admiral Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Admiral Group's case, that would currently equate to about 1.11p per share.

Admiral Group'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.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Admiral Group's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

Admiral Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Admiral Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 1779.5093p up to 3054p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while Admiral Group's is 0.2584. This would suggest that Admiral Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

To put Admiral Group's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
