Is Lsb Industries stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Lsb Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Lsb Industries shares trade at around 3x 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.

We're not expecting Lsb Industries to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Lsb Industries's shares ever split?

Lsb Industries's shares were split on a 13:10 basis on 11 October 2021. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 13 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lsb Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 23.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lsb Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Lsb Industries's share price.

Lsb Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lsb Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.06 up to $27.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LXU.US volatility(beta: 1.71)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 Lsb Industries's is 1.7056. This would suggest that Lsb Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
