Is Conagra Brands stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Conagra Brands stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Conagra Brands's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Conagra Brands's P/E ratio
Conagra Brands's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Conagra Brands shares trade at around 12x 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.
Conagra Brands's PEG ratio
Conagra Brands's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.9651. 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 Conagra Brands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Conagra Brands is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Conagra Brands's environmental score
Environmental score: 14.99/100

Conagra Brands's social score
Social score: 24.32/100
Conagra Brands's social score of 24.32 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Conagra Brands is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Conagra Brands share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 53.41% of net profits
Recently Conagra Brands has paid out, on average, around 53.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Conagra Brands shareholders could enjoy a 3.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Conagra Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $1.175 per share.
Conagra Brands'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.
Conagra Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 1 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Conagra Brands's shares ever split?
Conagra Brands's shares were split on a 1285:1000 basis on 9 November 2016. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1285 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Conagra Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 22.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Conagra Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Conagra Brands's share price.
Conagra Brands share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Conagra Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.44 up to $38.356. 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 Conagra Brands's is 0.8287. This would suggest that Conagra Brands's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
