Is Valmont Industries under- or over-valued?

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

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.

Valmont Industries's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Valmont 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.

Dividend payout ratio: 18.37% of net profits

Recently Valmont Industries has paid out, on average, around 18.37% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Valmont Industries shareholders could enjoy a 0.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Valmont Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $2.05 per share.

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

Valmont Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 15 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Valmont Industries's shares ever split?

Valmont Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 June 1997. 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 Valmont Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Valmont Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Valmont Industries's share price.

Valmont Industries share price volatility

VMI.US volatility(beta: 1.06)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

This would suggest that Valmont 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).
