Is Badger Meter under- or over-valued?

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

Badger Meter's P/E ratio

Badger Meter's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 49x. In other words, Badger Meter shares trade at around 49x 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.

Badger Meter's PEG ratio

Badger Meter's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.29. 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 Badger Meter's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Badger Meter's EBITDA

Badger Meter's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $100 million.

Badger Meter share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 39.18% of net profits

Recently Badger Meter has paid out, on average, around 39.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Badger Meter shareholders could enjoy a 0.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Badger Meter's case, that would currently equate to about $0.74 per share.

While Badger Meter's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Badger Meter may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Badger Meter's most recent dividend payout was on 10 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Badger Meter's shares ever split?

Badger Meter's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 September 2016. 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 Badger Meter shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Badger Meter shares which in turn could have impacted Badger Meter's share price.

Badger Meter share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Badger Meter's shares have ranged in value from as little as $88.7908 up to $112.36. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BMI.US volatility(beta: 0.73)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 Badger Meter's is 0.7309. This would suggest that Badger Meter's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
