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

52%

Dividend payout ratio: 51.75% of net profits

Recently Campbell Soup Company has paid out, on average, around 51.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.27% 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 3.27% 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.

Campbell Soup Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Campbell Soup Company's most recent dividend payout was on 30 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Campbell Soup Company's shares ever split?

Campbell Soup Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 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 $39.3689 up to $52.039. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
