Is Spectrum Brands stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Spectrum Brands stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Spectrum Brands's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Spectrum Brands's P/E ratio
Spectrum Brands's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, Spectrum Brands shares trade at around 33x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Spectrum Brands's PEG ratio
Spectrum Brands's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.02. 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 Spectrum Brands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Spectrum Brands is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Spectrum Brands share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 55.45% of net profits
Recently Spectrum Brands has paid out, on average, around 55.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Spectrum Brands shareholders could enjoy a 2.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Spectrum Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $1.68 per share.
Spectrum Brands'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.
Spectrum Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 8 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Spectrum Brands's shares ever split?
Spectrum Brands's shares were split on a 162:1000 basis on 15 July 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 162 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Spectrum Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 517.3% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Spectrum Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Spectrum Brands's share price.
Spectrum Brands share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Spectrum Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $74.2861 up to $106.2463. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Spectrum Brands's is 1.4814. This would suggest that Spectrum Brands's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
