Is KBR stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

KBR's P/E ratio

KBR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 47x. In other words, KBR shares trade at around 47x 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.

KBR's PEG ratio

KBR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.127. 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 KBR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

KBR's EBITDA

KBR's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $527 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a KBR's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

KBR share dividends

18%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.65% of net profits

Recently KBR has paid out, on average, around 17.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), KBR shareholders could enjoy a 0.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In KBR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.47 per share.

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

KBR's most recent dividend payout was on 12 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

KBR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, KBR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.3763 up to $56.5209. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KBR.US volatility(beta: 1.25)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while KBR's is 1.2497. This would suggest that KBR'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).
