Is it a good time to buy Ryanair 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 Ryanair under- or over-valued?

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

Ryanair's P/E ratio

Ryanair's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 61x. In other words, Ryanair shares trade at around 61x recent earnings.

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

However, Ryanair's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the airlines industry or those of similar companies.

Ryanair's PEG ratio

Ryanair's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 11.0247. 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 Ryanair'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 Ryanair's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Ryanair's EBITDA

Ryanair's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is €266.9 million (£0.0 million).

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

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

Ryanair'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 Ryanair.

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

Ryanair's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 37.01

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Ryanair's overall score of 37.01 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 63rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Ryanair 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 Ryanair's total ESG risk score against those of similar companies.

Ryanair's environmental score

Environmental score: 13/100

Ryanair's environmental score of 13 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Ryanair is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Ryanair's social score

Social score: 21.14/100

Ryanair's social score of 21.14 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Ryanair is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Ryanair's governance score

Governance score: 9.37/100

Ryanair's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Ryanair is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Ryanair's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, Ryanair scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Ryanair hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

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

You may also wish to consider:

Have Ryanair's shares ever split?

Ryanair's shares were split on a 39:40 basis on 28 October 2015. So if you had owned 40 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 39 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ryanair shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.6% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ryanair shares which in turn could have impacted Ryanair's share price.

Ryanair share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ryanair's shares have ranged in value from as little as €8.05 up to €17.595. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RYA.LSE volatility(beta: 1.48)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 Ryanair's is 1.483. This would suggest that Ryanair's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

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