Is Luxfer stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Luxfer's P/E ratio

Luxfer's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Luxfer shares trade at around 15x 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.

Luxfer's PEG ratio

Luxfer's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.791. 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 Luxfer's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Luxfer's EBITDA

Luxfer's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $61.4 million.

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

Luxfer share dividends

41%

Dividend payout ratio: 41.06% of net profits

Recently Luxfer has paid out, on average, around 41.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Luxfer shareholders could enjoy a 3.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Luxfer's case, that would currently equate to about $0.505 per share.

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

Luxfer's most recent dividend payout was on 3 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Luxfer share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Luxfer's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.4 up to $23.3683. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LXFR.US volatility(beta: 0.93)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 Luxfer's is 0.9311. This would suggest that Luxfer's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
