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

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.
BWX Technologies's PEG ratio
BWX Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.31. 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.

BWX Technologies share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 28.66% of net profits
Recently BWX Technologies has paid out, on average, around 28.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BWX Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 1.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BWX Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.89 per share.
While BWX Technologies's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that BWX Technologies may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
BWX Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 8 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BWX Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 28.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BWX Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted BWX Technologies's share price.
