Is Louisiana-Pacific Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Louisiana-Pacific Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's P/E ratio
Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Louisiana-Pacific Corporation shares trade at around 5x 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.
Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's PEG ratio
Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6808. 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 Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's EBITDA
Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.6 billion.

Louisiana-Pacific Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 6.65% of net profits
Recently Louisiana-Pacific Corporation has paid out, on average, around 6.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Louisiana-Pacific Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.84 per share.
While Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Louisiana-Pacific Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's shares ever split?
Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 8 June 1993. 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 Louisiana-Pacific Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Louisiana-Pacific Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's share price.
Louisiana-Pacific Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $48.0067 up to $77.2646. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's is 1.6076. This would suggest that Louisiana-Pacific 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).
