Is Standard Motor Products under- or over-valued?

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.

Standard Motor Products's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dividend payout ratio: 18.03% of net profits
Recently Standard Motor Products has paid out, on average, around 18.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Standard Motor Products shareholders could enjoy a 2.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Standard Motor Products's case, that would currently equate to about $0.75 per share.
While Standard Motor Products's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Standard Motor Products is investing more in its future growth.

However, indirectly, the new 60% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Standard Motor Products shares which in turn could have impacted Standard Motor Products's share price.
