Is Estee Lauder Companies stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Estee Lauder Companies share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 67.89% of net profits

Recently Estee Lauder Companies has paid out, on average, around 67.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Estee Lauder Companies shareholders could enjoy a 1.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Estee Lauder Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $2.52 per share.

Estee Lauder Companies's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Estee Lauder Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 15 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Estee Lauder Companies's shares ever split?

Estee Lauder Companies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 23 January 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 Estee Lauder Companies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Estee Lauder Companies shares which in turn could have impacted Estee Lauder Companies's share price.

Estee Lauder Companies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Estee Lauder Companies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $182.02 up to $281.8786. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EL.US volatility(beta: 1.01)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 Estee Lauder Companies's is 1.0116. This would suggest that Estee Lauder Companies'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).
