Is NAPCO Security Technologies stock undervalued or overvalued?

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into NAPCO Security Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

NAPCO Security Technologies share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 28.57% of net profits

Recently NAPCO Security Technologies has paid out, on average, around 28.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NAPCO Security Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NAPCO Security Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.323 per share.

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

NAPCO Security Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 23 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have NAPCO Security Technologies's shares ever split?

NAPCO Security Technologies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 January 2022. 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 NAPCO Security Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NAPCO Security Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted NAPCO Security Technologies's share price.

NAPCO Security Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NAPCO Security Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.6377 up to $55.8069. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NSSC.US volatility(beta: 1.61)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 NAPCO Security Technologies's is 1.612. This would suggest that NAPCO Security Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
