Is Barnes Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Barnes Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Barnes Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Barnes Group's P/E ratio
Barnes Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Barnes Group shares trade at around 21x 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.
Barnes Group's PEG ratio
Barnes Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.8351. 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 Barnes Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Barnes Group's EBITDA
Barnes Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $239.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Barnes Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Barnes Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 31.84% of net profits
Recently Barnes Group has paid out, on average, around 31.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Barnes Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Barnes Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.64 per share.
While Barnes Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Barnes Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Barnes Group's most recent dividend payout was on 8 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Barnes Group's shares ever split?
Barnes Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 June 2006. 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 Barnes Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Barnes Group shares which in turn could have impacted Barnes Group's share price.
Barnes Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Barnes Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.8161 up to $47.6008. 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 Barnes Group's is 1.2337. This would suggest that Barnes Group'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).
