Is Kellogg Company under- or over-valued?
Valuing Kellogg Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kellogg Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kellogg Company's P/E ratio
Kellogg Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Kellogg Company shares trade at around 17x 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.
Kellogg Company's PEG ratio
Kellogg Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8454. 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 Kellogg Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Kellogg Company's EBITDA
Kellogg Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Kellogg Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Kellogg Company shares
There are currently 21.4 million Kellogg Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Kellogg Company's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 21.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kellogg Company shares can be evaluated.
Kellogg Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Kellogg Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kellogg Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kellogg Company shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). Kellogg Company's SIR currently stands at 9.94. In other words for every 100,000 Kellogg Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9940 shares are currently held short.
However Kellogg Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kellogg Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kellogg Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kellogg Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kellogg Company shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0771% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kellogg Company shares, roughly 77 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Kellogg Company.

Kellogg Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 42.72% of net profits
Recently Kellogg Company has paid out, on average, around 42.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kellogg Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kellogg Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.28 per share.
While Kellogg Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Kellogg Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Kellogg Company's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Kellogg Company's shares ever split?
Kellogg Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 August 1997. 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 Kellogg Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kellogg Company shares which in turn could have impacted Kellogg Company's share price.
Kellogg Company share price volatility
