Is Sherwin-Williams stock undervalued or overvalued?

Sherwin-Williams share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 27.52% of net profits

Recently Sherwin-Williams has paid out, on average, around 27.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sherwin-Williams shareholders could enjoy a 1.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sherwin-Williams's case, that would currently equate to about $2.4 per share.

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

Sherwin-Williams's most recent dividend payout was on 9 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sherwin-Williams's shares ever split?

Sherwin-Williams's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 31 March 2021. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Sherwin-Williams shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sherwin-Williams shares which in turn could have impacted Sherwin-Williams's share price.

Sherwin-Williams share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sherwin-Williams's shares have ranged in value from as little as $194.2253 up to $282.1888. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SHW.US volatility(beta: 1.07)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 Sherwin-Williams's is 1.074. This would suggest that Sherwin-Williams's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
