Is it a good time to buy Marriott International stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. 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 Marriott International under- or over-valued?

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

Marriott International's P/E ratio

Marriott International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Marriott International shares trade at around 22x 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.

Marriott International's PEG ratio

Marriott International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6825. 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 Marriott International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Marriott International's EBITDA

Marriott International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$4.4 billion (£3.5 billion).

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

Marriott International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Marriott International's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$143.8536 up to US$210.74. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MAR.US volatility(beta: 1.58)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Marriott International's is 1.58. This would suggest that Marriott International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

Marriott International share dividends

23%

Dividend payout ratio: 23.28% of net profits

Recently Marriott International has paid out, on average, around 23.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Marriott International shareholders could enjoy a 1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Marriott International's case, that would currently equate to about $1.84 per share.

While Marriott International's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Marriott International is investing more in its future growth.

Marriott International's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 November 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
