Is it a good time to buy Las Vegas Sands 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 Las Vegas Sands under- or over-valued?

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

Las Vegas Sands's P/E ratio

Las Vegas Sands's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Las Vegas Sands shares trade at around 32x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Las Vegas Sands's PEG ratio

Las Vegas Sands's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6925. 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 Las Vegas Sands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Las Vegas Sands's EBITDA

Las Vegas Sands's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$3.6 billion (£2.9 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Las Vegas Sands's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Las Vegas Sands share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Las Vegas Sands's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$43.4181 up to US$64.8281. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LVS.US volatility(beta: 1.16)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Las Vegas Sands's is 1.157. This would suggest that Las Vegas Sands'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).

Las Vegas Sands share dividends

32%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.26% of net profits

Recently Las Vegas Sands has paid out, on average, around 32.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Las Vegas Sands shareholders could enjoy a 1.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Las Vegas Sands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

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

Las Vegas Sands's most recent dividend payout was on 13 February 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 February 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").
