Is Kohls stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Kohls's P/E ratio

Kohls'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, Kohls 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.

Kohls's PEG ratio

Kohls's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0666. 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 Kohls's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Kohls's EBITDA

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

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

Kohls share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 30.53% of net profits

Recently Kohls has paid out, on average, around 30.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kohls shareholders could enjoy a 6.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kohls's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.

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

Kohls's most recent dividend payout was on 20 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Kohls's shares ever split?

Kohls's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 April 2000. 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 Kohls shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kohls shares which in turn could have impacted Kohls's share price.

Kohls share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kohls's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.38 up to $60.8212. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KSS.US volatility(beta: 1.62)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 Kohls's is 1.6205. This would suggest that Kohls's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
