Is Glatfelter Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

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.

Glatfelter Corporation's PEG ratio

Glatfelter Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.8. 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 Glatfelter 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.

Glatfelter Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 69.38% of net profits

Recently Glatfelter Corporation has paid out, on average, around 69.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Glatfelter Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Glatfelter Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.55 per share.

Glatfelter 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.

Glatfelter Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Glatfelter Corporation's shares ever split?

Glatfelter Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 13 May 1992. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Glatfelter Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Glatfelter Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Glatfelter Corporation's share price.

Glatfelter Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Glatfelter Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.108 up to $18.8016. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GLT.US volatility(beta: 1.44)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Glatfelter Corporation's is 1.4435. This would suggest that Glatfelter Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
