Is Kemper Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Kemper Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kemper Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kemper Corporation's P/E ratio
Kemper 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 49x. In other words, Kemper Corporation shares trade at around 49x 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.
Kemper Corporation's PEG ratio
Kemper Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.29. 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 Kemper 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.
Kemper Corporation's EBITDA
Kemper Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $395.8 million.

Kemper Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 7.29% of net profits
Recently Kemper Corporation has paid out, on average, around 7.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kemper Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kemper Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.23 per share.
While Kemper Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Kemper Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Kemper Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Kemper Corporation's shares ever split?
Kemper Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 March 1999. 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 Kemper Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kemper Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Kemper Corporation's share price.
Kemper Corporation share price volatility
