Is Compass Diversified stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Compass Diversified stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Compass Diversified'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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Compass Diversified's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Compass Diversified share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 42.74% of net profits
Recently Compass Diversified has paid out, on average, around 42.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Compass Diversified shareholders could enjoy a 4.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Compass Diversified's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
While Compass Diversified's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Compass Diversified may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Compass Diversified's most recent dividend payout was on 25 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Compass Diversified's is 1.6739. This would suggest that Compass Diversified's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
