Is Huntsman Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Huntsman Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Huntsman Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Huntsman Corporation's P/E ratio
Huntsman 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 6x. In other words, Huntsman Corporation shares trade at around 6x 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.
Huntsman Corporation's PEG ratio
Huntsman Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.79. 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 Huntsman 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.
Huntsman Corporation's EBITDA

Huntsman Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 20.58% of net profits
Recently Huntsman Corporation has paid out, on average, around 20.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Huntsman Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Huntsman Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.825 per share.
While Huntsman Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Huntsman Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Huntsman Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Huntsman Corporation's shares ever split?
Huntsman Corporation's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 3 July 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Huntsman Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Huntsman Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Huntsman Corporation's share price.
Huntsman Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Huntsman Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.3591 up to $40.4977. 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 Huntsman Corporation's is 1.1392. This would suggest that Huntsman Corporation'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).
