Is Campbell Soup Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

Campbell Soup Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 49.83% of net profits
Recently Campbell Soup Company has paid out, on average, around 49.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Campbell Soup Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Campbell Soup Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.48 per share.
While Campbell Soup Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Campbell Soup Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Have Campbell Soup Company's shares ever split?
Campbell Soup Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 March 1997. 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 Campbell Soup Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Campbell Soup Company shares which in turn could have impacted Campbell Soup Company's share price.
Campbell Soup Company share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Campbell Soup Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $40.4793 up to $57.3947. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
