Is LKQ Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

LKQ Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 27.34% of net profits

Recently LKQ Corporation has paid out, on average, around 27.34% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), LKQ Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In LKQ Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.025 per share.

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

LKQ Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have LKQ Corporation's shares ever split?

LKQ Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 September 2012. 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 LKQ Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for LKQ Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted LKQ Corporation's share price.

LKQ Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, LKQ Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $42.5335 up to $59.0307. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LKQ.US volatility(beta: 1.37)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while LKQ Corporation's is 1.3672. This would suggest that LKQ Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
