Is Columbus McKinnon Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Columbus McKinnon Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Columbus McKinnon Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

Columbus McKinnon Corporation's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Columbus McKinnon 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.

Columbus McKinnon Corporation share dividends

9%

Dividend payout ratio: 9.22% of net profits

Recently Columbus McKinnon Corporation has paid out, on average, around 9.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Columbus McKinnon Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Columbus McKinnon Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.26 per share.

While Columbus McKinnon Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Columbus McKinnon Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
