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.

Dividend payout ratio: 31.82% of net profits

Recently Escalade Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 31.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Escalade Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 4.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Escalade Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.

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

Escalade Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 12 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Escalade Incorporated's shares ever split?

Escalade Incorporated's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 May 2004. 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 Escalade Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Escalade Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Escalade Incorporated's share price.

Escalade Incorporated share price volatility

ESCA.US volatility(beta: 1.35)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 Escalade Incorporated's is 1.3523. This would suggest that Escalade Incorporated's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
