Is Williams-Sonoma stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Williams-Sonoma stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Williams-Sonoma's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Williams-Sonoma's P/E ratio
Williams-Sonoma's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Williams-Sonoma shares trade at around 11x 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.
Williams-Sonoma's PEG ratio
Williams-Sonoma's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2581. 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 Williams-Sonoma's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Williams-Sonoma's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.5 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Williams-Sonoma's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Williams-Sonoma share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 19.35% of net profits
Recently Williams-Sonoma has paid out, on average, around 19.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Williams-Sonoma shareholders could enjoy a 1.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Williams-Sonoma's case, that would currently equate to about $2.42 per share.
While Williams-Sonoma's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Williams-Sonoma is investing more in its future growth.
Williams-Sonoma's most recent dividend payout was on 24 February 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Williams-Sonoma's shares ever split?
Williams-Sonoma's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 May 2002. 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 Williams-Sonoma shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Williams-Sonoma shares which in turn could have impacted Williams-Sonoma's share price.
Williams-Sonoma share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Williams-Sonoma's shares have ranged in value from as little as $116.7819 up to $223.32. 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 Williams-Sonoma's is 1.5114. This would suggest that Williams-Sonoma's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
