Is Escalade Incorporated under- or over-valued?

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.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Escalade Incorporated shares can be evaluated.
Escalade Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Escalade Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Escalade Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Escalade Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float").

Escalade Incorporated share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 27.05% of net profits
Recently Escalade Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 27.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Escalade Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 2.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Escalade Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $0.545 per share.
While Escalade Incorporated's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Escalade Incorporated may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Escalade Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 7 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Escalade Incorporated's shares ever split?
Escalade Incorporated's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 May 2004. 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 Escalade Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Escalade Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Escalade Incorporated's share price.
Escalade Incorporated share price volatility
