Is Crawford-and-Company under- or over-valued?

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

Crawford-and-Company's P/E ratio

Crawford-and-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 11x. In other words, Crawford-and-Company 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.

Crawford-and-Company's PEG ratio

Crawford-and-Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9136. 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 Crawford-and-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.

Crawford-and-Company's EBITDA

Crawford-and-Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $84.6 million.

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

Crawford-and-Company share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 26.97% of net profits

Recently Crawford-and-Company has paid out, on average, around 26.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Crawford-and-Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Crawford-and-Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.23 per share.

While Crawford-and-Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Crawford-and-Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Crawford-and-Company's most recent dividend payout was on 2 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Crawford-and-Company's shares ever split?

Crawford-and-Company's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 25 March 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Crawford-and-Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Crawford-and-Company shares which in turn could have impacted Crawford-and-Company's share price.

Crawford-and-Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Crawford-and-Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.23 up to $10.8546. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
