Is Myers Industries under- or over-valued?

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

Myers Industries's P/E ratio

Myers 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 23x. In other words, Myers Industries shares trade at around 23x 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.

Myers Industries's PEG ratio

Myers Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 14.87. 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 Myers Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Myers Industries's EBITDA

Myers Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $62.7 million.

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

Myers Industries share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 63.53% of net profits

Recently Myers Industries has paid out, on average, around 63.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Myers Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Myers Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.

Myers Industries's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Myers Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 4 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Myers Industries's shares ever split?

Myers Industries's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 10 August 2004. So if you had owned 10 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 Myers Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Myers Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Myers Industries's share price.

Myers Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Myers Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.4145 up to $23.3538. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MYE.US volatility(beta: 1.45)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 Myers Industries's is 1.4536. This would suggest that Myers Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
