Is WD-40 Company stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing WD-40 Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of WD-40 Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
WD-40 Company's P/E ratio
WD-40 Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 37x. In other words, WD-40 Company shares trade at around 37x 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.
WD-40 Company's PEG ratio
WD-40 Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.35. 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 WD-40 Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
WD-40 Company's EBITDA
WD-40 Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $90.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a WD-40 Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

WD-40 Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 69.21% of net profits
Recently WD-40 Company has paid out, on average, around 69.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), WD-40 Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WD-40 Company's case, that would currently equate to about $3.17 per share.
WD-40 Company'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.
WD-40 Company's most recent dividend payout was on 30 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have WD-40 Company's shares ever split?
WD-40 Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 July 1997. 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 WD-40 Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for WD-40 Company shares which in turn could have impacted WD-40 Company's share price.
WD-40 Company share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, WD-40 Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $144.4489 up to $232.4437. 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 WD-40 Company's is -0.2086. This would suggest that WD-40 Company's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, WD-40 Company has bucked the trend.
