Is Mosaic stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Mosaic share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 8.19% of net profits

Recently Mosaic has paid out, on average, around 8.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mosaic shareholders could enjoy a 2.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mosaic's case, that would currently equate to about $0.85 per share.

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

Mosaic's most recent dividend payout was on 15 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Mosaic's shares ever split?

Mosaic's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 December 1995. 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 Mosaic shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mosaic shares which in turn could have impacted Mosaic's share price.

Mosaic share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mosaic's shares have ranged in value from as little as $34.46 up to $63.5339. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MOS.US volatility(beta: 1.5)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 Mosaic's is 1.4989. This would suggest that Mosaic's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
