Is Ferro Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Ferro Corporation's P/E ratio

Ferro Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Ferro Corporation shares trade at around 12x 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.

Ferro Corporation's PEG ratio

Ferro Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6421. 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 Ferro Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ferro Corporation's EBITDA

Ferro Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $198.9 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Ferro Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Ferro Corporation share dividends

We're not expecting Ferro Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Ferro Corporation's shares ever split?

Ferro Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 December 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ferro Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ferro Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Ferro Corporation's share price.

Ferro Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ferro Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.28 up to $22.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FOE.US volatility(beta: 1.42)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 Ferro Corporation's is 1.4152. This would suggest that Ferro Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
