Is Chemed stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Chemed stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Chemed's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Chemed's P/E ratio
Chemed's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Chemed shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
Chemed's PEG ratio
Chemed's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4376. 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 Chemed's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Chemed's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $406.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Chemed's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Chemed share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 7.31% of net profits
Recently Chemed has paid out, on average, around 7.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chemed shareholders could enjoy a 0.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chemed's case, that would currently equate to about $1.42 per share.
While Chemed's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Chemed is investing more in its future growth.
Chemed's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Chemed's shares ever split?
Chemed's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 May 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 Chemed shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chemed shares which in turn could have impacted Chemed's share price.
Chemed share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Chemed's shares have ranged in value from as little as $402.1003 up to $539.0539. 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 Chemed's is 0.529. This would suggest that Chemed's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
