Is Nordson Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Nordson Corporation's P/E ratio

Nordson Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 27x. In other words, Nordson Corporation shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Nordson Corporation's PEG ratio

Nordson Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2533. 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 Nordson 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.

Nordson Corporation's EBITDA

Nordson Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $816.8 million.

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

Nordson Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 29.06% of net profits

Recently Nordson Corporation has paid out, on average, around 29.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nordson Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nordson Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.69 per share.

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

Nordson Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 3 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Nordson Corporation's shares ever split?

Nordson Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 April 2011. 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 Nordson Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nordson Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Nordson Corporation's share price.

Nordson Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nordson Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $207.2928 up to $278.6807. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NDSN.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 Nordson Corporation's is 0.909. This would suggest that Nordson Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
