Is Columbus McKinnon Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Columbus McKinnon Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Columbus McKinnon Corporation'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.

Columbus McKinnon Corporation's PEG ratio

Columbus McKinnon Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.464. 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 Columbus McKinnon Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Columbus McKinnon Corporation share dividends

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.76% of the current stock value.

In Columbus McKinnon Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.

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

CMCO.US volatility(beta: 1.21)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 Columbus McKinnon Corporation's is 1.206. This would suggest that Columbus McKinnon Corporation'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).
