Is Graco stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Graco share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 33.71% of net profits

Recently Graco has paid out, on average, around 33.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Graco shareholders could enjoy a 1.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Graco's case, that would currently equate to about $0.865 per share.

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

Graco's most recent dividend payout was on 2 May 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 April 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Graco's shares ever split?

Graco's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 27 December 2017. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Graco shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Graco shares which in turn could have impacted Graco's share price.

Graco share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Graco's shares have ranged in value from as little as $55.8947 up to $72.87. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GGG.US volatility(beta: 0.77)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 Graco's is 0.7745. This would suggest that Graco's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
