Is STERIS stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Gross profit TTM $2.2 billion
Return on assets TTM 4.4%
Return on equity TTM 1.68%

STERIS share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.9% of net profits

Recently STERIS has paid out, on average, around 22.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), STERIS shareholders could enjoy a 0.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In STERIS's case, that would currently equate to about $1.84 per share.

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

STERIS's most recent dividend payout was on 28 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have STERIS's shares ever split?

STERIS's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 August 1998. 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 STERIS shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for STERIS shares which in turn could have impacted STERIS's share price.

STERIS share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, STERIS's shares have ranged in value from as little as $158.3565 up to $227.7543. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

STE.US volatility(beta: 0.85)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 STERIS's is 0.8515. This would suggest that STERIS's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
