Is JOANN stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing JOANN stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of JOANN's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
JOANN's P/E ratio
JOANN's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 69x. In other words, JOANN shares trade at around 69x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
However, JOANN's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the specialty retail industry or those of similar companies.
JOANN's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $39 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a JOANN's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

JOANN share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 46.74% of net profits
Recently JOANN has paid out, on average, around 46.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), JOANN shareholders could enjoy a 5.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In JOANN's case, that would currently equate to about $0.42 per share.
While JOANN's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that JOANN may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
JOANN's most recent dividend payout was on 23 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
