Is Select Medical stock undervalued or overvalued?

Select Medical share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 31.25% of net profits

Recently Select Medical has paid out, on average, around 31.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Select Medical shareholders could enjoy a 1.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Select Medical's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

While Select Medical's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Select Medical may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Select Medical's most recent dividend payout was on 31 August 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Select Medical share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Select Medical's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.5123 up to $33.3655. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SEM.US volatility(beta: 1.4)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 Select Medical's is 1.4035. This would suggest that Select Medical's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
