Fruit and vegetable giant Dole is expected to go public later today and commence trading on the New York Stock Exchange Friday under the ticker symbol "DOLE," according to a Form F-1 filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

The company slashed its price range on the offering to $16 to $17 per share from $20 to $23 per share, a move that slices its targeted valuation by more than $400 million.

The IPO news comes months after Dole Food Company merged with Ireland's Total Produce to form the world's largest fruit and vegetable supply business.

Is Dole stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Dole's P/E ratio

Dole's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Dole shares trade at around 7x 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.

However, Dole's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the farm products industry or those of similar companies.

Dole's EBITDA

Dole's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $339 million.

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

To put Dole's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

Dole share dividends

24%

Dividend payout ratio: 23.88% of net profits

Recently Dole has paid out, on average, around 23.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dole shareholders could enjoy a 2.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dole's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

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

Dole's most recent dividend payout was on 4 July 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Dole's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

Dole share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Dole's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.3387 up to $13.89. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DOLE.US volatility(beta: 0.84)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Dole's is 0.839. This would suggest that Dole's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

To put Dole's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
