Is Badger Meter stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.
Badger Meter's PEG ratio
Badger Meter's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.29. 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 Badger Meter's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Badger Meter share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 38.1% of net profits
Recently Badger Meter has paid out, on average, around 38.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Badger Meter shareholders could enjoy a 1.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Badger Meter's case, that would currently equate to about $0.78 per share.
While Badger Meter's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Badger Meter may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Badger Meter's most recent dividend payout was on 9 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Badger Meter's shares ever split?
Badger Meter's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 September 2016. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Badger Meter shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Badger Meter shares which in turn could have impacted Badger Meter's share price.
Badger Meter share price volatility
