Is New York Times Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

New York Times Company's P/E ratio

New York Times 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 34x. In other words, New York Times Company shares trade at around 34x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

New York Times Company's PEG ratio

New York Times Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.11. 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 New York Times 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.

New York Times Company's EBITDA

New York Times Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $295.1 million.

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

New York Times Company share dividends

56%

Dividend payout ratio: 56.25% of net profits

Recently New York Times Company has paid out, on average, around 56.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), New York Times Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In New York Times Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.34 per share.

New York Times Company'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.

New York Times Company's most recent dividend payout was on 18 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have New York Times Company's shares ever split?

New York Times Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 July 1998. 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 New York Times Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for New York Times Company shares which in turn could have impacted New York Times Company's share price.

New York Times Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, New York Times Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.3879 up to $47.1614. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NYT.US volatility(beta: 0.98)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 New York Times Company's is 0.9836. This would suggest that New York Times Company's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
