Is Owens Corning stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Owens Corning shareholders could enjoy a 2.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Owens Corning's case, that would currently equate to about $1.4 per share.
