Is Miller Industries under- or over-valued?

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

Miller Industries's P/E ratio

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

Miller Industries's EBITDA

Miller Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $44.8 million.

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

Miller Industries share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 47.26% of net profits

Recently Miller Industries has paid out, on average, around 47.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Miller Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Miller Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

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

Miller Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 13 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Miller Industries's shares ever split?

Miller Industries's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 1 October 2001. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Miller Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Miller Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Miller Industries's share price.

Miller Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Miller Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.51 up to $46.8831. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MLR.US volatility(beta: 1)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 Miller Industries's is 1.0035. This would suggest that Miller Industries'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).
