Is Carter’s stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Carter’s stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Carter’s's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Carter’s's P/E ratio
Carter’s's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Carter’s shares trade at around 11x 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 shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Carter’s's PEG ratio
Carter’s's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.81. 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 Carter’s's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Carter’s's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $413.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Carter’s's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Carter’s share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 48.08% of net profits
Recently Carter’s has paid out, on average, around 48.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Carter’s shareholders could enjoy a 4.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Carter’s's case, that would currently equate to about $3 per share.
While Carter’s's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Carter’s may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Carter’s's most recent dividend payout was on 9 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Carter’s's shares ever split?
Carter’s's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 June 2006. 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 Carter’s shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Carter’s shares which in turn could have impacted Carter’s's share price.
Carter’s share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Carter’s's shares have ranged in value from as little as $61.4112 up to $85.895. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Carter’s's is 1.2347. This would suggest that Carter’s's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
