Is M-D-CHoldings under- or over-valued?

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

M-D-CHoldings's P/E ratio

M-D-CHoldings's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, M-D-CHoldings shares trade at around 6x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

M-D-CHoldings's PEG ratio

M-D-CHoldings's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.04. 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 M-D-CHoldings's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

M-D-CHoldings share dividends

22%

Recently M-D-CHoldings has paid out, on average, around 21.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), M-D-CHoldings shareholders could enjoy a 4.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In M-D-CHoldings's case, that would currently equate to about $1.67 per share.

While M-D-CHoldings's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that M-D-CHoldings is investing more in its future growth.

Have M-D-CHoldings's shares ever split?

M-D-CHoldings's shares were split on a 108:100 basis on 1 March 2021. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 108 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your M-D-CHoldings shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 7.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for M-D-CHoldings shares which in turn could have impacted M-D-CHoldings's share price.

M-D-CHoldings share price volatility

MDC.US volatility(beta: 1.42)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 M-D-CHoldings's is 1.4176. This would suggest that M-D-CHoldings's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
