Is Dillards under- or over-valued?

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

Dillards's P/E ratio

Dillards's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Dillards shares trade at around 9x 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.

Dillards's EBITDA

Dillards's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.1 billion.

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

Dillards share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 29.44% of net profits

Recently Dillards has paid out, on average, around 29.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.32% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dillards shareholders could enjoy a 0.32% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dillards's case, that would currently equate to about $0.65 per share.

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

Dillards's most recent dividend payout was on 31 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Dillards's shares ever split?

Dillards's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 8 June 1992. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Dillards shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dillards shares which in turn could have impacted Dillards's share price.

Dillards share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Dillards's shares have ranged in value from as little as $65.7096 up to $399.8448. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DDS.US volatility(beta: 0.9)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 Dillards's is 0.9017. This would suggest that Dillards's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
