Is PC-Tel stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

PC-Tel's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into PC-Tel'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-Tel share dividends

76%

Dividend payout ratio: 75.86% of net profits

Recently PC-Tel has paid out, on average, around 75.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PC-Tel shareholders could enjoy a 5.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PC-Tel's case, that would currently equate to about $0.22 per share.

PC-Tel'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.

PC-Tel's most recent dividend payout was on 12 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

PC-Tel share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while PC-Tel's is 0.3897. This would suggest that PC-Tel's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
