Is Escalade Incorporated stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Escalade Incorporated stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Escalade Incorporated's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Escalade Incorporated's P/E ratio
Escalade Incorporated's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Escalade Incorporated shares trade at around 6x 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.
Escalade Incorporated's PEG ratio
Escalade Incorporated's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.25. 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 Escalade Incorporated's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Escalade Incorporated share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 34.71% of net profits
Recently Escalade Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 34.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.03% 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 6.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Escalade Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $0.58 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 13 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Escalade Incorporated's shares ever split?
Escalade Incorporated's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 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
Over the last 12 months, Escalade Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.86 up to $19.7057. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Escalade Incorporated's is 1.1594. This would suggest that Escalade Incorporated'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).
