Is Dover Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Dover Corporation's P/E ratio

Dover 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 27x. In other words, Dover Corporation stocks trade at around 27x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Dover Corporation's PEG ratio

Dover Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7153. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Dover Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dover Corporation's EBITDA

There are currently 1.3 million Dover Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as Dover Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 18.5% down from 1.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dover Corporation stocks can be evaluated.

Dover Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dover Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dover Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dover Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 754742.35294118). Dover Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.7. In other words for every 100,000 Dover Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1700 stocks are currently held short.

However Dover Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dover Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Dover Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dover Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Dover Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.009% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Dover Corporation stocks, roughly 9 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Dover Corporation.

Dover Corporation stock dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 28.28% of net profits

Recently Dover Corporation has paid out, on average, around 28.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dover Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dover Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.98 per share.

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

Dover Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 30 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Dover Corporation stocks ever split?

Dover Corporation stocks were split on a 1238:1000 basis on 9 May 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1238 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dover Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 19.2% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Dover Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted Dover Corporation's stock price.

Dover Corporation stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Dover Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $103.9195 up to $176.46. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DOV.US volatility(beta: 1.37)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Dover Corporation's is 1.3701. This would suggest that Dover Corporation's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
