Is Acco Brands Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Acco Brands Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Acco Brands Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.
Acco Brands Corporation's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Acco Brands Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Acco Brands Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 22.22% of net profits
Recently Acco Brands Corporation has paid out, on average, around 22.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Acco Brands Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 6.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Acco Brands Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.29 per share.
While Acco Brands Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Acco Brands Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Acco Brands Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 19 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Acco Brands Corporation's shares ever split?
Acco Brands Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 31 August 1989. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Acco Brands Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Acco Brands Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Acco Brands Corporation's share price.
Acco Brands Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Acco Brands Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.9 up to $9.1312. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Acco Brands Corporation's is 1.8638. This would suggest that Acco Brands Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
