Is Tyson Foods stock undervalued or overvalued?

Tyson Foods's P/E ratio

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Tyson Foods's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Tyson Foods share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 21.68% of net profits
Recently Tyson Foods has paid out, on average, around 21.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tyson Foods shareholders could enjoy a 1.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tyson Foods's case, that would currently equate to about $1.78 per share.
While Tyson Foods's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Tyson Foods is investing more in its future growth.
Tyson Foods's most recent dividend payout was on 14 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Tyson Foods's shares ever split?
Tyson Foods's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 17 February 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tyson Foods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tyson Foods shares which in turn could have impacted Tyson Foods's share price.
Tyson Foods share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Tyson Foods's shares have ranged in value from as little as $61.1368 up to $94.06. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
