Is Burberry Group under- or over-valued?

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

P/E ratio

Burberry 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 20x. In other words, Burberry Group shares trade at around 20x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71).

PEG ratio

Burberry Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1714. A PEG ratio close to 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares offer reasonable value for the current rate of growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Burberry 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.

EBITDA

Burberry Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £486.9 million.

Burberry Group share dividends

2.2%

Dividend yield: 2.23% of stock value

2.3%

Forward annual dividend yield: 2.27% of stock value

46.2%

Dividend payout ratio: 46.2% of net profits

Burberry Group has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 2.23% of its share value annually.

Burberry Group has paid out, on average, around 46.2% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 2.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Burberry Group's case, that would currently equate to about 42.5p per share.

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

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Burberry Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 1324.5085p up to 2266.5337p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BRBY.LSE volatility(beta: 1.18)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while Burberry Group's is 1.1846. This would suggest that Burberry Group'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).
