Is Edgewell Personal Care Company under- or over-valued?

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

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.

Edgewell Personal Care Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.39. 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 Edgewell Personal Care 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.

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), Edgewell Personal Care Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Edgewell Personal Care Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

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

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Edgewell Personal Care Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Edgewell Personal Care Company shares which in turn could have impacted Edgewell Personal Care Company's share price.
