Is Archer-Daniels-Midland Company under- or over-valued?

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

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.

PEG ratio

Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.0295. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.

Dividend yield: 2.07% of stock value

2.1%

30.2%

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 2.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.47 per share.

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

Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's most recent dividend payout was on 8 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares which in turn could have impacted Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's share price.
