Marriott International Is Too Expensive at Current Levels:
Compared to the Consumer Discretionary sector's average of 22.33, Marriott International has a trailing twelve month P/E ratio of 23.12 and, according to its EPS guidance of 8.66, an expected P/E ratio of 19.3. Marriott International's PEG ratio is 0.23 based on its 99.8% annual average growth rate of historical and projected earnings per share. However, we believe that it is more prudent to calculate the PEG ratio using the broader market's 5-year expected EPS growth rate of 13.05%, because the growth rate implied by Marriott International's past and expected EPS is probably not sustainable. This more prudent approach shows a PEG ratio of 1.77, which suggests that the company's shares are actually overvalued.
Marriott International's P/B ratio is 47.45 compared to its sector average of 3.12. The company is likely overvalued in terms of its net asset value. The company's shares are currently trading 1213.04% above their fair value as expressed by Benjamin Graham's formula:
√(22.5 * 5-year average EPS * book value per share) = √(22.5 * 3.94 * 1.829) = $12.73
