Is Acushnet under- or over-valued?
Valuing Acushnet stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Acushnet's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Acushnet's P/E ratio
Acushnet's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Acushnet shares trade at around 16x 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.
Acushnet's PEG ratio
Acushnet's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.66. 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 Acushnet's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Acushnet's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $344.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Acushnet's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Acushnet shareholders could enjoy a 1.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Acushnet's case, that would currently equate to about $0.65 per share.
While Acushnet's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Acushnet is investing more in its future growth.
