Is Village Super Market stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Village Super Market stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Village Super Market's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

Village Super Market share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 102.79% of net profits
Recently Village Super Market has paid out, on average, around 102.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Village Super Market shareholders could enjoy a 4.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Village Super Market's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
Village Super Market'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.
Village Super Market's most recent dividend payout was on 26 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 October 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Village Super Market's shares ever split?
Village Super Market's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 January 2009. 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 Village Super Market shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Village Super Market shares which in turn could have impacted Village Super Market's share price.
