Is Columbia Sportswear Company stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Columbia Sportswear Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Columbia Sportswear Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Columbia Sportswear Company's P/E ratio
Columbia Sportswear Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Columbia Sportswear Company shares trade at around 18x 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.
Columbia Sportswear Company's PEG ratio
Columbia Sportswear Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.66. 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 Columbia Sportswear Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Columbia Sportswear Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 24.19% of net profits
Recently Columbia Sportswear Company has paid out, on average, around 24.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.32% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Columbia Sportswear Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.32% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Columbia Sportswear Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.
While Columbia Sportswear Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Columbia Sportswear Company is investing more in its future growth.
Columbia Sportswear Company's most recent dividend payout was on 20 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Columbia Sportswear Company's shares ever split?
Columbia Sportswear Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 September 2014. 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 Columbia Sportswear Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Columbia Sportswear Company shares which in turn could have impacted Columbia Sportswear Company's share price.
