Is Greenbrier Companies stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Greenbrier Companies shareholders could enjoy a 4.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Greenbrier Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.
Greenbrier Companies'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.
Greenbrier Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 17 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Greenbrier Companies's is 1.32. This would suggest that Greenbrier Companies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
