Is Korn Ferry stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Korn Ferry's P/E ratio

Korn Ferry's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Korn Ferry shares trade at around 10x 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.

Korn Ferry's PEG ratio

Korn Ferry's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.36. 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 Korn Ferry's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Korn Ferry's EBITDA

Korn Ferry's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $459.7 million.

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

Korn Ferry share dividends

8%

Dividend payout ratio: 8.17% of net profits

Recently Korn Ferry has paid out, on average, around 8.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Korn Ferry shareholders could enjoy a 0.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Korn Ferry's case, that would currently equate to about $0.46 per share.

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

Korn Ferry's most recent dividend payout was on 13 April 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Korn Ferry share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Korn Ferry's shares have ranged in value from as little as $51.08 up to $84.224. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KFY.US volatility(beta: 1.44)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 Korn Ferry's is 1.4428. This would suggest that Korn Ferry's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
