Is PACCAR stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

PACCAR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 44.74% of net profits

Recently PACCAR has paid out, on average, around 44.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PACCAR shareholders could enjoy a 1.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PACCAR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.94 per share.

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

PACCAR's most recent dividend payout was on 7 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have PACCAR's shares ever split?

PACCAR's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 7 February 2023. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your PACCAR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PACCAR shares which in turn could have impacted PACCAR's share price.

PACCAR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PACCAR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $49.4138 up to $76.72. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PCAR.US volatility(beta: 0.94)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 PACCAR's is 0.9449. This would suggest that PACCAR's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
