Is Donaldson Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Donaldson Company's P/E ratio

Donaldson 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 19x. In other words, Donaldson Company shares trade at around 19x 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.

Donaldson Company's PEG ratio

Donaldson Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5497. 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 Donaldson 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.

Donaldson Company's EBITDA

Donaldson Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $541.4 million.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Donaldson Company is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Donaldson Company's environmental score

Donaldson Company's social score

Social score: 12.69/100

Donaldson Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 33.46% of net profits

Recently Donaldson Company has paid out, on average, around 33.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Donaldson Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Donaldson Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.

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

Donaldson Company's most recent dividend payout was on 31 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Donaldson Company's shares ever split?

Donaldson Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 March 2012. 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 Donaldson Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Donaldson Company shares which in turn could have impacted Donaldson Company's share price.

Donaldson Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Donaldson Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $45.8141 up to $62.128. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DCI.US volatility(beta: 1.26)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 Donaldson Company's is 1.2561. This would suggest that Donaldson 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).
