Is CSP stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

CSP's P/E ratio

CSP's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 42x. In other words, CSP shares trade at around 42x 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.

CSP share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 10.58% of net profits

Recently CSP has paid out, on average, around 10.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CSP shareholders could enjoy a 1.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CSP's case, that would currently equate to about $0.33 per share.

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

CSP's most recent dividend payout was on 8 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CSP's shares ever split?

CSP's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 18 April 1999. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CSP shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CSP shares which in turn could have impacted CSP's share price.

CSP share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CSP's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.5809 up to $9.9431. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CSPI.US volatility(beta: 1.37)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while CSP's is 1.372. This would suggest that CSP's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
