Is Park Ohio stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Park Ohio's P/E ratio

Park Ohio's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Park Ohio shares trade at around 8x 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.

Park Ohio's PEG ratio

Park Ohio's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.09. 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 Park Ohio's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Park Ohio's EBITDA

Park Ohio's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $127.8 million.

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

Park Ohio share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 15.58% of net profits

Recently Park Ohio has paid out, on average, around 15.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Park Ohio shareholders could enjoy a 2.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Park Ohio's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

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

Park Ohio's most recent dividend payout was on 16 May 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Park Ohio's shares ever split?

Park Ohio's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 5 April 1981. 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 Park Ohio shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Park Ohio shares which in turn could have impacted Park Ohio's share price.

Park Ohio share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Park Ohio's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.1438 up to $28.3498. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PKOH.US volatility(beta: 1.18)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 Park Ohio's is 1.177. This would suggest that Park Ohio'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).
