Is Campbell Soup Company under- or over-valued?

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.

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

Recently Campbell Soup Company has paid out, on average, around 51.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Campbell Soup Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Campbell Soup Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.48 per share.

Campbell Soup Company'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.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Campbell Soup Company shares which in turn could have impacted Campbell Soup Company's share price.
