Is Griffon Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Griffon Corporation's P/E ratio

Griffon 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 17x. In other words, Griffon Corporation shares trade at around 17x 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.

Griffon Corporation's PEG ratio

Griffon Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.36. 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 Griffon Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Griffon Corporation's EBITDA

Griffon Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $245.2 million.

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

Griffon Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.3% of net profits

Recently Griffon Corporation has paid out, on average, around 22.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Griffon Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Griffon Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

While Griffon Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Griffon Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Griffon Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Griffon Corporation's shares ever split?

Griffon Corporation's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 15 August 2001. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Griffon Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Griffon Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Griffon Corporation's share price.

Griffon Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Griffon Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.2594 up to $29.42. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GFF.US volatility(beta: 1.84)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 Griffon Corporation's is 1.8368. This would suggest that Griffon Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
