Is Brady Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Brady Corporation's P/E ratio

Brady Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Brady Corporation stocks trade at around 22x 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 stocks or simply that they're under-valued.

Brady Corporation's PEG ratio

Brady Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Brady Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Brady Corporation's EBITDA

Brady Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$182.5 million.

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

There are currently 798,142 Brady Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as Brady Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.2% down from 859,708 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Brady Corporation stocks can be evaluated.

Brady Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Brady Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Brady Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Brady Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 241130.51359517). Brady Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.31. In other words for every 100,000 Brady Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3310 stocks are currently held short.

However Brady Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Brady Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Brady Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Brady Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Brady Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0169% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Brady Corporation stocks, roughly 17 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Brady Corporation.

Brady Corporation stock dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 35.63% of net profits

Recently Brady Corporation has paid out, on average, around 35.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brady Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brady Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.877 per share.

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

Brady Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 7 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Brady Corporation stocks ever split?

Brady Corporation stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 January 2005. 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 Brady Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Brady Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted Brady Corporation's stock price.

Brady Corporation stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Brady Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $37.0176 up to $61.5121. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BRC.US volatility(beta: 0.83)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
