Is WRGrace-and-Co stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing WRGrace-and-Co stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of WRGrace-and-Co's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

WRGrace-and-Co's P/E ratio

WRGrace-and-Co's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 60x. In other words, WRGrace-and-Co shares trade at around 60x 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.

WRGrace-and-Co share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 19.81% of net profits

Recently WRGrace-and-Co has paid out, on average, around 19.81% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), WRGrace-and-Co shareholders could enjoy a 1.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WRGrace-and-Co's case, that would currently equate to about $0.93 per share.

While WRGrace-and-Co's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that WRGrace-and-Co is investing more in its future growth.

WRGrace-and-Co's most recent dividend payout was on 22 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have WRGrace-and-Co's shares ever split?

WRGrace-and-Co's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 December 1987. 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 WRGrace-and-Co shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for WRGrace-and-Co shares which in turn could have impacted WRGrace-and-Co's share price.

WRGrace-and-Co share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, WRGrace-and-Co's shares have ranged in value from as little as $68.96 up to $70. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GRA.US volatility(beta: 1.45)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 WRGrace-and-Co's is 1.4547. This would suggest that WRGrace-and-Co's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
