Is Kforce stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Kforce's P/E ratio

Kforce's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Kforce shares trade at around 22x 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.

Kforce's PEG ratio

Kforce's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.43. 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 Kforce's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Kforce's EBITDA

Kforce's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $82.8 million.

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

Kforce share dividends

46%

Dividend payout ratio: 45.54% of net profits

Recently Kforce has paid out, on average, around 45.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kforce shareholders could enjoy a 2.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kforce's case, that would currently equate to about $1.46 per share.

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

Kforce's most recent dividend payout was on 27 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Kforce's shares ever split?

Kforce's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 October 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 Kforce shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kforce shares which in turn could have impacted Kforce's share price.

Kforce share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kforce's shares have ranged in value from as little as $52.5164 up to $73.9269. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KFRC.US volatility(beta: 0.91)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 Kforce's is 0.905. This would suggest that Kforce's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
