Is Culp stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Culp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Culp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Culp's P/E ratio
Culp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Culp shares trade at around 17x 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.
Culp's PEG ratio
Culp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0294. 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 Culp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Culp's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $17.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Culp's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$316 million|
|Operating margin TTM||3.37%|
|Gross profit TTM||$49.8 million|
|Return on assets TTM||3.23%|
|Return on equity TTM||5.22%|
|Market capitalisation||$111.1 million|

Culp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 82.41% of net profits
Recently Culp has paid out, on average, around 82.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Culp shareholders could enjoy a 5.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Culp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.44 per share.
Culp'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.
Culp's most recent dividend payout was on 18 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Culp's shares ever split?
Culp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 11 January 1994. 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 Culp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Culp shares which in turn could have impacted Culp's share price.
Culp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Culp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.5204 up to $17.2728. 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 Culp's is 1.0872. This would suggest that Culp's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
