Is Goodyear 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

Goodyear's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Goodyear shares trade at around 19x 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.

PEG ratio

Goodyear's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.67. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.

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

Goodyear's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $1.7 billion (£1.3 billion).

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

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Goodyear 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.).

Environmental score

Have Goodyear's shares ever split?

Goodyear's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 May 1993. 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 Goodyear shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Goodyear shares which in turn could have impacted Goodyear's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Goodyear's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.95 up to $24.89. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GT.US volatility(beta: 2.02)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 Goodyear's is 2.0177. This would suggest that Goodyear's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
