Is Greif Bros Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Greif Bros Corporation's P/E ratio

Greif Bros 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 11x. In other words, Greif Bros Corporation shares trade at around 11x 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.

Greif Bros Corporation's PEG ratio

Greif Bros Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.25. 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 Greif Bros 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.

Greif Bros Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 23.59% of net profits

Recently Greif Bros Corporation has paid out, on average, around 23.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Greif Bros Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Greif Bros Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.88 per share.

While Greif Bros Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Greif Bros Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Greif Bros Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Greif Bros Corporation's shares ever split?

Greif Bros Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 April 2007. 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 Greif Bros Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Greif Bros Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Greif Bros Corporation's share price.

Greif Bros Corporation share price volatility
