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

Avery Dennison'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, Avery Dennison 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.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.57% of the current stock value.

In Avery Dennison's case, that would currently equate to about $2.86 per share.
While Avery Dennison's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Avery Dennison may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Avery Dennison shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Avery Dennison shares which in turn could have impacted Avery Dennison's share price.
