Is Methanex Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Methanex Corporation's P/E ratio

Methanex 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 7x. In other words, Methanex Corporation shares trade at around 7x 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.

Methanex Corporation's PEG ratio

Methanex Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.98. 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 Methanex 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.

Methanex Corporation's EBITDA

10%

Dividend payout ratio: 9.63% of net profits

Recently Methanex Corporation has paid out, on average, around 9.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Methanex Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Methanex Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.57 per share.

While Methanex Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Methanex Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Methanex Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
