Is Commercial Metals Company under- or over-valued?

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

Commercial Metals Company's P/E ratio

Commercial Metals Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Commercial Metals Company shares trade at around 8x 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.

Commercial Metals Company's PEG ratio

Commercial Metals Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 12.2526. 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 Commercial Metals 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.

Commercial Metals Company's EBITDA

Commercial Metals Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $941.5 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Commercial Metals Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Commercial Metals Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 11.35% of net profits

Recently Commercial Metals Company has paid out, on average, around 11.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Commercial Metals Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Commercial Metals Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

While Commercial Metals Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Commercial Metals Company is investing more in its future growth.

Commercial Metals Company's most recent dividend payout was on 2 February 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Commercial Metals Company's shares ever split?

Commercial Metals Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 May 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 Commercial Metals Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Commercial Metals Company shares which in turn could have impacted Commercial Metals Company's share price.

Commercial Metals Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Commercial Metals Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.2072 up to $38.72. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CMC.US volatility(beta: 1.25)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Commercial Metals Company's is 1.2484. This would suggest that Commercial Metals Company'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).
