Is ADTRAN under- or over-valued?

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

ADTRAN's P/E ratio

ADTRAN's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 578x. In other words, ADTRAN shares trade at around 578x 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.

ADTRAN's PEG ratio

ADTRAN's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 11.04. 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 ADTRAN's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ADTRAN's EBITDA

ADTRAN's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $8.9 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a ADTRAN's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

ADTRAN share dividends

95%

Dividend payout ratio: 94.74% of net profits

Recently ADTRAN has paid out, on average, around 94.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ADTRAN shareholders could enjoy a 1.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ADTRAN's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.

ADTRAN'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.

ADTRAN's most recent dividend payout was on 29 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ADTRAN's shares ever split?

ADTRAN's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 December 2003. 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 ADTRAN shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ADTRAN shares which in turn could have impacted ADTRAN's share price.

ADTRAN share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ADTRAN's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.0859 up to $24.6545. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ADTN.US volatility(beta: 1.33)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ADTRAN's is 1.3325. This would suggest that ADTRAN's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
