Is Pool Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

Pool Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.46% of net profits

Recently Pool Corporation has paid out, on average, around 21.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pool Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pool Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $3.8 per share.

While Pool Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Pool Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Pool Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 28 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Pool Corporation's shares ever split?

Pool Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 12 September 2004. 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 Pool Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pool Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Pool Corporation's share price.

Pool Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Pool Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $276.3963 up to $468.6384. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

POOL.US volatility(beta: 0.93)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 Pool Corporation's is 0.933. This would suggest that Pool Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
