Is Kelly Services A under- or over-valued?

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Kelly Services A's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Kelly Services A share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 15.19% of net profits

Recently Kelly Services A has paid out, on average, around 15.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kelly Services A shareholders could enjoy a 1.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kelly Services A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.25 per share.

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

Kelly Services A's most recent dividend payout was on 7 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Kelly Services A's shares ever split?

Kelly Services A's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 14 June 1993. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kelly Services A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kelly Services A shares which in turn could have impacted Kelly Services A's share price.

Kelly Services A share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kelly Services A's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.3511 up to $22.7145. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KELYA.US volatility(beta: 1.12)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 Kelly Services A's is 1.1222. This would suggest that Kelly Services A'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).
