Is Shoe Carnival stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Shoe Carnival's P/E ratio

Shoe Carnival's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Shoe Carnival shares trade at around 7x 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.

Shoe Carnival's PEG ratio

Shoe Carnival's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.95. 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 Shoe Carnival's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shoe Carnival's EBITDA

Shoe Carnival's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $212.3 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Shoe Carnival's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shoe Carnival share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 5.51% of net profits

Recently Shoe Carnival has paid out, on average, around 5.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Shoe Carnival shareholders could enjoy a 0.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Shoe Carnival's case, that would currently equate to about $0.255 per share.

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

Shoe Carnival's most recent dividend payout was on 23 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Shoe Carnival's shares ever split?

Shoe Carnival's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 July 2021. 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 Shoe Carnival shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Shoe Carnival shares which in turn could have impacted Shoe Carnival's share price.

Shoe Carnival share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Shoe Carnival's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.2367 up to $46.1232. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SCVL.US volatility(beta: 1.42)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 Shoe Carnival's is 1.4227. This would suggest that Shoe Carnival's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
