Is Consolidated Water Co stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Consolidated Water Co stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Consolidated Water Co's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Consolidated Water Co's P/E ratio
Consolidated Water Co's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Consolidated Water Co shares trade at around 32x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Consolidated Water Co's PEG ratio
Consolidated Water Co's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0393. 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 Consolidated Water Co's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Consolidated Water Co share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 42.68% of net profits
Recently Consolidated Water Co has paid out, on average, around 42.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Consolidated Water Co shareholders could enjoy a 1.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Consolidated Water Co's case, that would currently equate to about $0.34 per share.
While Consolidated Water Co's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Consolidated Water Co may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Consolidated Water Co's most recent dividend payout was on 30 October 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Consolidated Water Co's shares ever split?
Consolidated Water Co's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 August 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 Consolidated Water Co shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Consolidated Water Co shares which in turn could have impacted Consolidated Water Co's share price.
Consolidated Water Co share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Consolidated Water Co's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.1817 up to $31.85. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
