Is NewMarket Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

NewMarket Corporation's P/E ratio

NewMarket 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 17x. In other words, NewMarket Corporation shares trade at around 17x 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.

NewMarket Corporation's PEG ratio

NewMarket Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.09. 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 NewMarket 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.

NewMarket Corporation's EBITDA

NewMarket Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $396.6 million.

NewMarket Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 41.46% of net profits

Recently NewMarket Corporation has paid out, on average, around 41.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NewMarket Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NewMarket Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $8.4 per share.

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

NewMarket Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 2 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have NewMarket Corporation's shares ever split?

NewMarket Corporation's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 30 June 2002. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NewMarket Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for NewMarket Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted NewMarket Corporation's share price.

NewMarket Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NewMarket Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $276.4426 up to $350.54. 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 NewMarket Corporation's is 0.3286. This would suggest that NewMarket Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
