Is Educational Development Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Educational Development Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Educational Development Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Educational Development Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 34.04% of net profits
Recently Educational Development Corporation has paid out, on average, around 34.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Educational Development Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 5.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Educational Development Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
While Educational Development Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Educational Development Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Educational Development Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 8 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Educational Development Corporation's shares ever split?
Educational Development Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 August 2018. 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 Educational Development Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Educational Development Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Educational Development Corporation's share price.
Educational Development Corporation share price volatility
