Is Scotts Miracle-Gro Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Scotts Miracle-Gro Company share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 139.68% of net profits

Recently Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has paid out, on average, around 139.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Scotts Miracle-Gro Company shareholders could enjoy a 5.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Scotts Miracle-Gro Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.64 per share.

Scotts Miracle-Gro 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.

Scotts Miracle-Gro Company's most recent dividend payout was on 7 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Scotts Miracle-Gro Company's shares ever split?

Scotts Miracle-Gro Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 November 2005. 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 Scotts Miracle-Gro Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Scotts Miracle-Gro Company shares which in turn could have impacted Scotts Miracle-Gro Company's share price.

Scotts Miracle-Gro Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Scotts Miracle-Gro Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.4237 up to $85.9146. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SMG.US volatility(beta: 1.64)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 Scotts Miracle-Gro Company's is 1.6449. This would suggest that Scotts Miracle-Gro Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
