Is Olin Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Olin Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Olin Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Olin Corporation's P/E ratio
Olin 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 5x. In other words, Olin Corporation shares trade at around 5x 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.
Olin Corporation's PEG ratio
Olin Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.82. 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 Olin 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.
Olin Corporation's EBITDA
Olin Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.8 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Olin Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Olin Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 8.35% of net profits
Recently Olin Corporation has paid out, on average, around 8.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Olin Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Olin Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
While Olin Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Olin Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Olin Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 8 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Olin Corporation's shares ever split?
Olin Corporation's shares were split on a 1575:1000 basis on 8 February 1999. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1575 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Olin Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 36.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Olin Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Olin Corporation's share price.
Olin Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Olin Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $42.86 up to $66.9999. 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 Olin Corporation's is 1.3004. This would suggest that Olin Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
