Is Lowes Companies stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Lowes Companies's P/E ratio

Lowes Companies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Lowes Companies shares trade at around 20x 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.

Lowes Companies's PEG ratio

Lowes Companies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0278. 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 Lowes Companies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Lowes Companies's EBITDA

Lowes Companies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $14.6 billion.

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

Lowes Companies share dividends

30%

Dividend payout ratio: 29.86% of net profits

Recently Lowes Companies has paid out, on average, around 29.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lowes Companies shareholders could enjoy a 2.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lowes Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $3.7 per share.

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

Lowes Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 8 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Lowes Companies's shares ever split?

Lowes Companies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 July 2006. 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 Lowes Companies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lowes Companies shares which in turn could have impacted Lowes Companies's share price.

Lowes Companies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lowes Companies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $167.3822 up to $234.6862. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LOW.US volatility(beta: 1.13)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 Lowes Companies's is 1.1291. This would suggest that Lowes Companies's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
