Is Crane Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Crane Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 23.86% of net profits

Recently Crane Company has paid out, on average, around 23.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Crane Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Crane Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.88 per share.

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

Crane Company's most recent dividend payout was on 7 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Crane Company's shares ever split?

Crane Company's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 14 September 1998. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Crane Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Crane Company shares which in turn could have impacted Crane Company's share price.

Crane Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Crane Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $81.0538 up to $123.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CR.US volatility(beta: 1.5)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Crane Company's is 1.4967. This would suggest that Crane Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
