Is Knoll under- or over-valued?

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

Knoll's PEG ratio

Knoll's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.91. 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 Knoll's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Knoll's EBITDA

Knoll's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $103.1 million.

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

Knoll share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 43.9% of net profits

Recently Knoll has paid out, on average, around 43.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Knoll shareholders could enjoy a 0.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Knoll's case, that would currently equate to about $0.22 per share.

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

Knoll's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Knoll share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Knoll's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.59 up to $27.2393. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KNL.US volatility(beta: 2.07)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 Knoll's is 2.0669. This would suggest that Knoll's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
