Is Stantec stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Stantec share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 17.58% of net profits

Recently Stantec has paid out, on average, around 17.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Stantec shareholders could enjoy a 1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Stantec's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

While Stantec's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Stantec is investing more in its future growth.

Stantec's most recent dividend payout was on 16 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Stantec's shares ever split?

Stantec's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 November 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Stantec shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stantec shares which in turn could have impacted Stantec's share price.

Stantec share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Stantec's shares have ranged in value from as little as $40.5501 up to $61.61. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

STN.US volatility(beta: 0.72)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 Stantec's is 0.7151. This would suggest that Stantec's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
