Is Foot Locker stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Foot Locker's P/E ratio

Foot Locker's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Foot Locker shares trade at around 9x 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.

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

Foot Locker's environmental, social and governance track record

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Foot Locker is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Foot Locker's environmental score

Environmental score: 9.03/100

Foot Locker's environmental score of 9.03 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Foot Locker is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Foot Locker's social score

Social score: 12.95/100

Foot Locker's social score of 12.95 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Foot Locker is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Foot Locker share dividends

31%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.53% of net profits

Recently Foot Locker has paid out, on average, around 30.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Foot Locker shareholders could enjoy a 4.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Foot Locker's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.

While Foot Locker's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Foot Locker may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Foot Locker's most recent dividend payout was on 26 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Foot Locker's shares ever split?

Foot Locker's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 May 1990. 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 Foot Locker shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Foot Locker shares which in turn could have impacted Foot Locker's share price.

Foot Locker share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Foot Locker's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.185 up to $43.8051. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FL.US volatility(beta: 1.21)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 Foot Locker's is 1.2128. This would suggest that Foot Locker'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).
