Is Brady Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Brady Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Brady Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Brady Corporation's P/E ratio
Brady Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Brady Corporation shares trade at around 22x 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.
Brady Corporation's PEG ratio
Brady Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5. 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 Brady 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.

Shorting Brady Corporation shares
There are currently 546,556 Brady Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Brady Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 35.8% down from 851,126 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Brady Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Brady Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Brady Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Brady Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Brady Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 247310.40723982). Brady Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.21. In other words for every 100,000 Brady Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2210 shares are currently held short.
However Brady Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Brady Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Brady Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Brady Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Brady Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0116% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Brady Corporation shares, roughly 12 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Brady Corporation.

Brady Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 35.63% of net profits
Recently Brady Corporation has paid out, on average, around 35.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brady Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brady Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.877 per share.
While Brady Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Brady Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Brady Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Brady Corporation's shares ever split?
Brady Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 January 2005. 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 Brady Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Brady Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Brady Corporation's share price.
Brady Corporation share price volatility
