Is Insteel Industries under- or over-valued?

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

Insteel Industries's P/E ratio

Insteel Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Insteel Industries shares trade at around 12x 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.

Insteel Industries's PEG ratio

Insteel Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.74. 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 Insteel Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Insteel Industries's EBITDA

Insteel Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $103.7 million.

Insteel Industries share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 60.16% of net profits

Recently Insteel Industries has paid out, on average, around 60.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Insteel Industries shareholders could enjoy a 0.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Insteel Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.

Insteel Industries'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.

Insteel Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 16 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Insteel Industries's shares ever split?

Insteel Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 June 2006. 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 Insteel Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Insteel Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Insteel Industries's share price.

Insteel Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Insteel Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.7362 up to $44.59. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IIIN.US volatility(beta: 1.42)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 Insteel Industries's is 1.4202. This would suggest that Insteel Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
