Is Methode Electronics stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Methode Electronics share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 25.57% of net profits

Recently Methode Electronics has paid out, on average, around 25.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.49% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Methode Electronics shareholders could enjoy a 2.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Methode Electronics's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.

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

Methode Electronics's most recent dividend payout was on 26 October 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 October 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Methode Electronics's shares ever split?

Methode Electronics's shares were split on a 10000:3742 basis on 29 April 2001. So if you had owned 3742 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Methode Electronics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 62.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Methode Electronics shares which in turn could have impacted Methode Electronics's share price.

Methode Electronics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Methode Electronics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.93 up to $50.999. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MEI.US volatility(beta: 1.03)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 Methode Electronics's is 1.0266. This would suggest that Methode Electronics'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).
