Is SpartanNash stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

SpartanNash's P/E ratio

SpartanNash's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, SpartanNash shares trade at around 17x 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.

SpartanNash's PEG ratio

SpartanNash's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.08. 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 SpartanNash's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

SpartanNash's EBITDA

SpartanNash's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $192.9 million.

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

SpartanNash share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 39.52% of net profits

Recently SpartanNash has paid out, on average, around 39.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SpartanNash shareholders could enjoy a 2.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SpartanNash's case, that would currently equate to about $0.82 per share.

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

SpartanNash's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

SpartanNash share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SpartanNash's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.8743 up to $36.9665. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SPTN.US volatility(beta: 0.7)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
