Is Kaman Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Kaman Corporation's P/E ratio

Kaman 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 385x. In other words, Kaman Corporation shares trade at around 385x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Kaman Corporation's PEG ratio

Kaman Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.24. 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 Kaman 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.

Kaman Corporation's EBITDA

Kaman Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $110 million.

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

Kaman Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 43.01% of net profits

Recently Kaman Corporation has paid out, on average, around 43.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kaman Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kaman Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

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

Kaman Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 12 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Kaman Corporation's shares ever split?

Kaman Corporation's shares were split on a 8:5 basis on 1 November 1987. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 8 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kaman Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 37.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kaman Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Kaman Corporation's share price.

Kaman Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kaman Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.7671 up to $57.8092. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KAMN.US volatility(beta: 1.31)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 Kaman Corporation's is 1.3147. This would suggest that Kaman 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).
