Is Franklin Electric Co stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Franklin Electric Co's P/E ratio

Franklin Electric Co's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Franklin Electric Co shares trade at around 25x 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.

Franklin Electric Co's PEG ratio

Franklin Electric Co's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.8826. 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 Franklin Electric Co's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Franklin Electric Co's EBITDA

Franklin Electric Co's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $312.8 million.

Franklin Electric Co share dividends

24%

Dividend payout ratio: 23.51% of net profits

Recently Franklin Electric Co has paid out, on average, around 23.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Franklin Electric Co shareholders could enjoy a 1.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Franklin Electric Co's case, that would currently equate to about $0.925 per share.

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

Franklin Electric Co's most recent dividend payout was on 15 May 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 April 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Franklin Electric Co's shares ever split?

Franklin Electric Co's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 March 2013. 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 Franklin Electric Co shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Franklin Electric Co shares which in turn could have impacted Franklin Electric Co's share price.

Franklin Electric Co share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Franklin Electric Co's shares have ranged in value from as little as $81.9699 up to $107.6098. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FELE.US volatility(beta: 0.96)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 Franklin Electric Co's is 0.956. This would suggest that Franklin Electric Co's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
