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

Weyerhaeuser 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 10x. In other words, Weyerhaeuser Company 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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Weyerhaeuser 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.

Weyerhaeuser Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 57.51% of net profits
Recently Weyerhaeuser Company has paid out, on average, around 57.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Weyerhaeuser Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Weyerhaeuser Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.
Weyerhaeuser 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.
Weyerhaeuser Company's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Weyerhaeuser Company's shares ever split?
Weyerhaeuser Company's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 2 June 1988. 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 Weyerhaeuser Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Weyerhaeuser Company shares which in turn could have impacted Weyerhaeuser Company's share price.
Weyerhaeuser Company share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Weyerhaeuser Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.49 up to $42.4359. 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 Weyerhaeuser Company's is 1.4938. This would suggest that Weyerhaeuser Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
