Is MGP Ingredients under- or over-valued?

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

MGP Ingredients's P/E ratio

MGP Ingredients's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, MGP Ingredients shares trade at around 22x 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.

MGP Ingredients's PEG ratio

MGP Ingredients's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.47. 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 MGP Ingredients's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

MGP Ingredients's EBITDA

MGP Ingredients share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 11.65% of net profits

Recently MGP Ingredients has paid out, on average, around 11.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), MGP Ingredients shareholders could enjoy a 0.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In MGP Ingredients's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

While MGP Ingredients's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that MGP Ingredients is investing more in its future growth.

MGP Ingredients's most recent dividend payout was on 2 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have MGP Ingredients's shares ever split?

MGP Ingredients's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 July 2004. 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 MGP Ingredients shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for MGP Ingredients shares which in turn could have impacted MGP Ingredients's share price.

MGP Ingredients share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MGP Ingredients's shares have ranged in value from as little as $54.3817 up to $89.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MGPI.US volatility(beta: 1.25)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while MGP Ingredients's is 1.2529. This would suggest that MGP Ingredients's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
