Is Smith-and-Wesson Brands stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Smith-and-Wesson Brands stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Smith-and-Wesson Brands's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Smith-and-Wesson Brands's P/E ratio

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.

Smith-and-Wesson Brands share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 29.85% of net profits
Recently Smith-and-Wesson Brands has paid out, on average, around 29.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Smith-and-Wesson Brands shareholders could enjoy a 3.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Smith-and-Wesson Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.38 per share.
While Smith-and-Wesson Brands's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Smith-and-Wesson Brands may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Smith-and-Wesson Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 29 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Smith-and-Wesson Brands's shares ever split?
Smith-and-Wesson Brands's shares were split on a 1301:1000 basis on 24 August 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1301 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 23.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Smith-and-Wesson Brands's share price.
Smith-and-Wesson Brands share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Smith-and-Wesson Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.135 up to $16.1052. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Smith-and-Wesson Brands's is 1.0744. This would suggest that Smith-and-Wesson Brands'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).
