Is Ocean Bio-Chem stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Ocean Bio-Chem's P/E ratio

Ocean Bio-Chem'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, Ocean Bio-Chem 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.

Ocean Bio-Chem share dividends

19%

Dividend payout ratio: 18.65% of net profits

Recently Ocean Bio-Chem has paid out, on average, around 18.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ocean Bio-Chem shareholders could enjoy a 1.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ocean Bio-Chem's case, that would currently equate to about $0.13 per share.

While Ocean Bio-Chem's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ocean Bio-Chem is investing more in its future growth.

Ocean Bio-Chem's most recent dividend payout was on 22 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ocean Bio-Chem's shares ever split?

Ocean Bio-Chem's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 24 September 2002. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ocean Bio-Chem shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ocean Bio-Chem shares which in turn could have impacted Ocean Bio-Chem's share price.

Ocean Bio-Chem share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ocean Bio-Chem's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.9 up to $13.1783. 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 Ocean Bio-Chem's is 0.3702. This would suggest that Ocean Bio-Chem's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
