Is Core-Mark Holding Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Core-Mark Holding Company's P/E ratio

Core-Mark Holding 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 31x. In other words, Core-Mark Holding Company shares trade at around 31x 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.

Core-Mark Holding Company's PEG ratio

Core-Mark Holding Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.72. 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 Core-Mark Holding 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.

Core-Mark Holding Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 36.36% of net profits

Recently Core-Mark Holding Company has paid out, on average, around 36.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Core-Mark Holding Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Core-Mark Holding Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.51 per share.

While Core-Mark Holding Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Core-Mark Holding Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Core-Mark Holding Company's most recent dividend payout was on 29 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Core-Mark Holding Company's shares ever split?

Core-Mark Holding Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 June 2016. 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 Core-Mark Holding Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Core-Mark Holding Company shares which in turn could have impacted Core-Mark Holding Company's share price.

Core-Mark Holding Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Core-Mark Holding Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.8065 up to $47.6914. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
