Is Kirkland Lake Gold stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Kirkland Lake Gold's P/E ratio

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

Kirkland Lake Gold's EBITDA

Kirkland Lake Gold's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.8 billion.

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

Kirkland Lake Gold share dividends

30%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.49% of net profits

Recently Kirkland Lake Gold has paid out, on average, around 30.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kirkland Lake Gold shareholders could enjoy a 1.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kirkland Lake Gold's case, that would currently equate to about $0.75 per share.

While Kirkland Lake Gold's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Kirkland Lake Gold may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Kirkland Lake Gold's most recent dividend payout was on 14 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Kirkland Lake Gold's shares ever split?

Kirkland Lake Gold's shares were split on a 1415:2979 basis on 6 December 2016. So if you had owned 2979 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1415 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kirkland Lake Gold shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 110.5% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kirkland Lake Gold shares which in turn could have impacted Kirkland Lake Gold's share price.

Kirkland Lake Gold share price volatility

KL.US volatility(beta: 0.53)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 Kirkland Lake Gold's is 0.5278. This would suggest that Kirkland Lake Gold's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
