Is Deluxe Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Deluxe Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Deluxe Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Deluxe Corporation's P/E ratio
Deluxe Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Deluxe Corporation shares trade at around 18x 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.
Deluxe Corporation's PEG ratio
Deluxe Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.84. 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 Deluxe Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Deluxe Corporation's EBITDA
Deluxe Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $312.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Deluxe Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Deluxe Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 24.05% of net profits
Recently Deluxe Corporation has paid out, on average, around 24.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Deluxe Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Deluxe Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.
While Deluxe Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Deluxe Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Deluxe Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 5 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Deluxe Corporation's shares ever split?
Deluxe Corporation's shares were split on a 10000:7995 basis on 1 January 2001. So if you had owned 7995 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Deluxe Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Deluxe Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Deluxe Corporation's share price.
Deluxe Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Deluxe Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.59 up to $47.5612. 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 Deluxe Corporation's is 1.555. This would suggest that Deluxe Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
