Is NAPCO Security Technologies stock undervalued or overvalued?

Recently NAPCO Security Technologies has paid out, on average, around 14.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NAPCO Security Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 1.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NAPCO Security Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.062 per share.

Have NAPCO Security Technologies's shares ever split?
NAPCO Security Technologies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 January 2022. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NAPCO Security Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NAPCO Security Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted NAPCO Security Technologies's share price.
NAPCO Security Technologies share price volatility
