Is Northern Technologies stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Northern Technologies's P/E ratio

Northern Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Northern Technologies shares trade at around 15x 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.

Northern Technologies's EBITDA

Northern Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Northern Technologies's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Northern Technologies share dividends

68%

Dividend payout ratio: 68.29% of net profits

Recently Northern Technologies has paid out, on average, around 68.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Northern Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 2.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Northern Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.275 per share.

Northern Technologies'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.

Northern Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 17 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Northern Technologies's shares ever split?

Northern Technologies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 July 2019. 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 Northern Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Northern Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Northern Technologies's share price.

Northern Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Northern Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.993 up to $17.5975. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NTIC.US volatility(beta: 1.13)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Northern Technologies's is 1.1266. This would suggest that Northern Technologies'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).
