Is Kelly Services stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Kelly Services stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kelly Services's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kelly Services's P/E ratio
Kelly Services's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Kelly Services shares trade at around 7x 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.
Kelly Services's PEG ratio
Kelly Services's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0477. 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 Kelly Services's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Kelly Services's EBITDA
Kelly Services's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $77.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Kelly Services's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Kelly Services share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 7.87% of net profits
Recently Kelly Services has paid out, on average, around 7.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kelly Services shareholders could enjoy a 1.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kelly Services's case, that would currently equate to about $0.05 per share.
While Kelly Services's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Kelly Services is investing more in its future growth.
Kelly Services's most recent dividend payout was on 7 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Kelly Services's shares ever split?
Kelly Services's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 13 June 1993. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kelly Services shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kelly Services shares which in turn could have impacted Kelly Services's share price.
Kelly Services share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Kelly Services's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.89 up to $26.8399. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Kelly Services's is 1.1602. This would suggest that Kelly Services'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).
