Is Wabash National Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Wabash National Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Wabash National Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Wabash National Corporation's P/E ratio
Wabash National Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 36x. In other words, Wabash National Corporation shares trade at around 36x 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.
Wabash National Corporation's PEG ratio
Wabash National Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1. 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 Wabash National Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Wabash National Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 32.32% of net profits
Recently Wabash National Corporation has paid out, on average, around 32.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wabash National Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wabash National Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.
While Wabash National Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Wabash National Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Wabash National Corporation'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 Wabash National Corporation's shares ever split?
Wabash National Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 28 July 1994. 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 Wabash National Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Wabash National Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Wabash National Corporation's share price.
Wabash National Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Wabash National Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.1586 up to $21.3767. 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 Wabash National Corporation's is 1.5997. This would suggest that Wabash National Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
