Is MDC stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing MDC stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of MDC's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
MDC's P/E ratio
MDC's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, MDC shares trade at around 4x 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.
MDC's PEG ratio
MDC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.04. 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 MDC's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
MDC's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $952.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a MDC's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

MDC share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 22.73% of net profits
Recently MDC has paid out, on average, around 22.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), MDC shareholders could enjoy a 5.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In MDC's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.
While MDC's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that MDC is investing more in its future growth.
MDC's most recent dividend payout was on 23 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have MDC's shares ever split?
MDC's shares were split on a 108:100 basis on 2 March 2021. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 108 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your MDC shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 7.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for MDC shares which in turn could have impacted MDC's share price.
MDC share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, MDC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.5869 up to $47.9378. 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 MDC's is 1.3631. This would suggest that MDC's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
