Is Kaman Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Kaman Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kaman Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kaman Corporation's P/E ratio
Kaman 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 25x. In other words, Kaman Corporation shares trade at around 25x 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.
Kaman Corporation's PEG ratio
Kaman Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.24. 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 Kaman 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.
Kaman Corporation's EBITDA
Kaman Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $100 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Kaman Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Kaman Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 51.95% of net profits
Recently Kaman Corporation has paid out, on average, around 51.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kaman Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kaman Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
Kaman Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Kaman Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 13 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Kaman Corporation's shares ever split?
Kaman Corporation's shares were split on a 8:5 basis on 2 November 1987. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 8 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kaman Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 37.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kaman Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Kaman Corporation's share price.
Kaman Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Kaman Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.7541 up to $45.9121. 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 Kaman Corporation's is 1.1542. This would suggest that Kaman 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).
