Is GrafTech International stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing GrafTech International stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GrafTech International's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
GrafTech International's P/E ratio
GrafTech International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, GrafTech International shares trade at around 3x 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.
GrafTech International's EBITDA
GrafTech International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $539.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a GrafTech International's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

GrafTech International share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 2.74% of net profits
Recently GrafTech International has paid out, on average, around 2.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GrafTech International shareholders could enjoy a 0.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GrafTech International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.04 per share.
While GrafTech International's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that GrafTech International is investing more in its future growth.
GrafTech International's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have GrafTech International's shares ever split?
GrafTech International's shares were split on a 100:1 basis on 29 June 2010. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 100 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your GrafTech International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 99% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for GrafTech International shares which in turn could have impacted GrafTech International's share price.
GrafTech International share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, GrafTech International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.0547 up to $10.1836. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while GrafTech International's is 1.415. This would suggest that GrafTech International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
