Is KB Home stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing KB Home stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of KB Home's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
KB Home's P/E ratio
KB Home's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, KB Home shares trade at around 4x 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.
KB Home's PEG ratio
KB Home's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.63. 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 KB Home's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
KB Home's EBITDA
KB Home's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a KB Home's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

KB Home share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 6.58% of net profits
Recently KB Home has paid out, on average, around 6.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), KB Home shareholders could enjoy a 1.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In KB Home's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.
While KB Home's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that KB Home is investing more in its future growth.
KB Home's most recent dividend payout was on 15 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have KB Home's shares ever split?
KB Home's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 April 2005. 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 KB Home shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for KB Home shares which in turn could have impacted KB Home's share price.
KB Home share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, KB Home's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.5282 up to $42.236. 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 KB Home's is 1.5532. This would suggest that KB Home's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
