Is Designer Brands stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Designer Brands stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Designer Brands's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Designer Brands's P/E ratio
Designer Brands's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Designer Brands shares trade at around 7x 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.
Designer Brands's PEG ratio
Designer Brands's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.61. 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 Designer Brands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Designer Brands's EBITDA
Designer Brands's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $321.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Designer Brands's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Designer Brands share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 5.63% of net profits
Recently Designer Brands has paid out, on average, around 5.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Designer Brands shareholders could enjoy a 1.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Designer Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.
While Designer Brands's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Designer Brands is investing more in its future growth.
Designer Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 5 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Designer Brands's shares ever split?
Designer Brands's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 November 2013. 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 Designer Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Designer Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Designer Brands's share price.
Designer Brands share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Designer Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.1287 up to $19.3199. 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 Designer Brands's is 2.0064. This would suggest that Designer Brands's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
