Is PC Connection stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing PC Connection stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PC Connection's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PC Connection's P/E ratio
PC Connection's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, PC Connection shares trade at around 14x 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.
PC Connection's PEG ratio
PC Connection's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.62. 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 PC Connection's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
PC Connection's EBITDA
PC Connection's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $140 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a PC Connection's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

PC Connection share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 9.66% of net profits
Recently PC Connection has paid out, on average, around 9.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PC Connection shareholders could enjoy a 0.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PC Connection's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.
While PC Connection's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that PC Connection is investing more in its future growth.
PC Connection's most recent dividend payout was on 22 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have PC Connection's shares ever split?
PC Connection's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 23 May 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 PC Connection shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PC Connection shares which in turn could have impacted PC Connection's share price.
PC Connection share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, PC Connection's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.7332 up to $56.3333. 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 PC Connection's is 0.7719. This would suggest that PC Connection's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
