Valuing Sanderson Farms stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sanderson Farms's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sanderson Farms's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Sanderson Farms shares trade at around 5x 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.
Sanderson Farms's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.64. 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 Sanderson Farms's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dividend payout ratio: 3.42% of net profits
Recently Sanderson Farms has paid out, on average, around 3.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sanderson Farms shareholders could enjoy a 0.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sanderson Farms's case, that would currently equate to about $1.76 per share.
While Sanderson Farms's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Sanderson Farms is investing more in its future growth.
Sanderson Farms's most recent dividend payout was on 16 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Sanderson Farms's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 26 February 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 Sanderson Farms shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sanderson Farms shares which in turn could have impacted Sanderson Farms's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Sanderson Farms's shares have ranged in value from as little as $175.4165 up to $221.63. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
