Is Lamb Weston stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Lamb Weston's PEG ratio

Lamb Weston's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.3593. 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 Lamb Weston's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Lamb Weston share dividends

In Lamb Weston's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

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

Lamb Weston's most recent dividend payout was on 30 May 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").
