Is Cedar Fair stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Cedar Fair stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cedar Fair's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cedar Fair's P/E ratio
Cedar Fair's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Cedar Fair shares trade at around 10x 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.
Cedar Fair's PEG ratio
Cedar Fair's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.72. 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 Cedar Fair's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Cedar Fair's EBITDA
Cedar Fair's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $495.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Cedar Fair's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Cedar Fair share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 27.53% of net profits
Recently Cedar Fair has paid out, on average, around 27.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cedar Fair shareholders could enjoy a 2.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cedar Fair's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.
While Cedar Fair's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Cedar Fair may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Cedar Fair's most recent dividend payout was on 21 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Cedar Fair's shares ever split?
Cedar Fair's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 November 1997. 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 Cedar Fair shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cedar Fair shares which in turn could have impacted Cedar Fair's share price.
Cedar Fair share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Cedar Fair's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.008 up to $47.7049. 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 Cedar Fair's is 1.4669. This would suggest that Cedar Fair's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
