Is Watts Water Technologies stock undervalued or overvalued?

Watts Water Technologies share dividends

17%

Dividend payout ratio: 16.83% of net profits

Recently Watts Water Technologies has paid out, on average, around 16.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Watts Water Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Watts Water Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $1.16 per share.

While Watts Water Technologies's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Watts Water Technologies is investing more in its future growth.

Watts Water Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 14 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Watts Water Technologies's shares ever split?

Watts Water Technologies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 March 1994. 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 Watts Water Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Watts Water Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Watts Water Technologies's share price.

Watts Water Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Watts Water Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $115.6393 up to $181.0899. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WTS.US volatility(beta: 1.01)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 Watts Water Technologies's is 1.0077. This would suggest that Watts Water Technologies's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
