Is SolarWinds Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

SolarWinds Corporation's P/E ratio

SolarWinds Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, SolarWinds Corporation shares trade at around 13x 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.

SolarWinds Corporation's EBITDA

SolarWinds Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $167.4 million.

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

SolarWinds Corporation share dividends

84%

Dividend payout ratio: 83.8% of net profits

Recently SolarWinds Corporation has paid out, on average, around 83.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SolarWinds Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SolarWinds Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.75 per share.

SolarWinds Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

SolarWinds Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 23 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have SolarWinds Corporation's shares ever split?

SolarWinds Corporation's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 1 August 2021. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SolarWinds Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for SolarWinds Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted SolarWinds Corporation's share price.

SolarWinds Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SolarWinds Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.55 up to $21.3055. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SWI.US volatility(beta: 0.88)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 SolarWinds Corporation's is 0.8764. This would suggest that SolarWinds Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
