Is Park Electrochemical Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Park Electrochemical Corporation's P/E ratio

Park Electrochemical 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 32x. In other words, Park Electrochemical Corporation shares trade at around 32x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Park Electrochemical Corporation's PEG ratio

Park Electrochemical Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.36. 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 Park Electrochemical 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.

Park Electrochemical Corporation's EBITDA

Park Electrochemical Corporation share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 105.79% of net profits

Recently Park Electrochemical Corporation has paid out, on average, around 105.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Park Electrochemical Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Park Electrochemical Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

Park Electrochemical Corporation'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.

Park Electrochemical Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 3 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Park Electrochemical Corporation's shares ever split?

Park Electrochemical Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 8 November 2000. 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 Park Electrochemical Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Park Electrochemical Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Park Electrochemical Corporation's share price.

Park Electrochemical Corporation share price volatility
