Is Kennametal stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Kennametal share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 52.29% of net profits

Recently Kennametal has paid out, on average, around 52.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kennametal shareholders could enjoy a 3.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kennametal's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

Kennametal'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.

Kennametal's most recent dividend payout was on 23 May 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Kennametal's shares ever split?

Kennametal's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 December 2007. 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 Kennametal shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kennametal shares which in turn could have impacted Kennametal's share price.

Kennametal share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kennametal's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.7545 up to $30.1589. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KMT.US volatility(beta: 1.88)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 Kennametal's is 1.88. This would suggest that Kennametal's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
