Is Tennant Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Tennant Company's P/E ratio

Tennant Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Tennant Company shares trade at around 19x 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.

Tennant Company's PEG ratio

Tennant Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.01. 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 Tennant Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Tennant Company's EBITDA

Tennant Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $125.9 million.

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

Tennant Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 27.1% of net profits

Recently Tennant Company has paid out, on average, around 27.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tennant Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tennant Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.98 per share.

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

Tennant Company's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Tennant Company's shares ever split?

Tennant Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 July 2006. 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 Tennant Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tennant Company shares which in turn could have impacted Tennant Company's share price.

Tennant Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tennant Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $54.6833 up to $84.6458. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TNC.US volatility(beta: 1.08)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 Tennant Company's is 1.0783. This would suggest that Tennant Company's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
