Is Educational Development Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Educational Development Corporation's P/E ratio

Educational Development 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 5x. In other words, Educational Development Corporation shares trade at around 5x 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.

Educational Development Corporation's EBITDA

Educational Development Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $12.4 million.

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

Educational Development Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 52.29% of net profits

Recently Educational Development Corporation has paid out, on average, around 52.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Educational Development Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 8.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Educational Development Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

Educational Development Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Educational Development Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 10 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Educational Development Corporation's shares ever split?

Educational Development Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 23 August 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Educational Development Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Educational Development Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Educational Development Corporation's share price.

Educational Development Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Educational Development Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.38 up to $14.6681. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EDUC.US volatility(beta: 1.02)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Educational Development Corporation's is 1.0165. This would suggest that Educational Development Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
