Is National Beverage stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing National Beverage stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of National Beverage's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
National Beverage's P/E ratio
National Beverage's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 27x. In other words, National Beverage shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
National Beverage's PEG ratio
National Beverage's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.0188. 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 National Beverage's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
National Beverage's EBITDA
National Beverage's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $203.3 million.

National Beverage share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 144.23% of net profits
Recently National Beverage has paid out, on average, around 144.23% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), National Beverage shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In National Beverage's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.
National Beverage's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
National Beverage's most recent dividend payout was on 28 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have National Beverage's shares ever split?
National Beverage's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 February 2021. 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 National Beverage shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for National Beverage shares which in turn could have impacted National Beverage's share price.
National Beverage share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, National Beverage's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.1 up to $60.9043. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while National Beverage's is 0.8418. This would suggest that National Beverage's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
