Is Buckle stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Buckle stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Buckle's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Buckle's P/E ratio
Buckle's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Buckle shares trade at around 8x 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.
Buckle's PEG ratio
Buckle's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 48.3. 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 Buckle's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Buckle's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $346 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Buckle's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Buckle share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 78.19% of net profits
Recently Buckle has paid out, on average, around 78.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Buckle shareholders could enjoy a 3.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Buckle's case, that would currently equate to about $1.4 per share.
Buckle'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.
Buckle's most recent dividend payout was on 26 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Buckle's shares ever split?
Buckle's shares were split on a 10241:1000 basis on 12 January 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10241 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Buckle shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Buckle shares which in turn could have impacted Buckle's share price.
Buckle share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Buckle's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.3863 up to $47.3172. 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 Buckle's is 0.9697. This would suggest that Buckle's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
