Is Kroger Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Kroger Company's P/E ratio

Kroger 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 14x. In other words, Kroger Company shares trade at around 14x 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.

Kroger Company's PEG ratio

Kroger Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7206. 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 Kroger 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.

Kroger Company's EBITDA

Kroger Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $7.5 billion.

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

Kroger Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 23.91% of net profits

Recently Kroger Company has paid out, on average, around 23.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kroger Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kroger Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.94 per share.

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

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

Have Kroger Company's shares ever split?

Kroger Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 13 July 2015. 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 Kroger Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kroger Company shares which in turn could have impacted Kroger Company's share price.

Kroger Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kroger Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.594 up to $61.8567. 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 Kroger Company's is 0.4892. This would suggest that Kroger Company's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
