Is Timken Company stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Timken Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Timken Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Timken Company's P/E ratio
Timken 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 13x. In other words, Timken Company shares trade at around 13x 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.
Timken Company's PEG ratio
Timken Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8261. 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 Timken 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.
Timken Company's EBITDA
Timken Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $748.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Timken Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Timken Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 23.28% of net profits
Recently Timken Company has paid out, on average, around 23.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Timken Company shareholders could enjoy a 2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Timken Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.21 per share.
While Timken Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Timken Company is investing more in its future growth.
Timken Company's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Timken Company's shares ever split?
Timken Company's shares were split on a 1397:1000 basis on 30 June 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1397 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Timken Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 28.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Timken Company shares which in turn could have impacted Timken Company's share price.
Timken Company share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Timken Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $50.618 up to $77.0831. 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 Timken Company's is 1.5937. This would suggest that Timken 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).
