Is Wayside Technology Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Wayside Technology Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Wayside Technology Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Wayside Technology Group's P/E ratio
Wayside Technology Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Wayside Technology Group shares trade at around 10x 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.
Wayside Technology Group's EBITDA
Wayside Technology Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $16.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Wayside Technology Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Wayside Technology Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 26.02% of net profits
Recently Wayside Technology Group has paid out, on average, around 26.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wayside Technology Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wayside Technology Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
While Wayside Technology Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Wayside Technology Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Wayside Technology Group's most recent dividend payout was on 19 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Wayside Technology Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Wayside Technology Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.65 up to $39.2386. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Wayside Technology Group's is 0.7511. This would suggest that Wayside Technology Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
