Is Marshalls stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Marshalls stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Marshalls's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Marshalls's P/E ratio
Marshalls's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 27x. In other words, Marshalls shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Marshalls's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £114.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Marshalls's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||£719.4 million|

TTM: trailing 12 months
Marshalls share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 2.1% of net profits
Recently Marshalls has paid out, on average, around 2.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Marshalls shareholders could enjoy a 5.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Marshalls's case, that would currently equate to about 0.156p per share.
While Marshalls's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Marshalls is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Marshalls's shares ever split?
Marshalls's shares were split on a 11:13 basis on 8 July 2004. So if you had owned 13 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Marshalls shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 18.2% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Marshalls shares which in turn could have impacted Marshalls's share price.
Marshalls share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Marshalls's shares have ranged in value from as little as 211.3736p up to 528.6513p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while Marshalls's is 1.0066. This would suggest that Marshalls'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).
