Is it a good time to buy Avery Dennison Corporation stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Avery Dennison Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Avery Dennison Corporation's P/E ratio

Avery Dennison 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 25x. In other words, Avery Dennison Corporation shares trade at around 25x 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, Avery Dennison Corporation's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the business equipment & supplies industry or those of similar companies.

Avery Dennison Corporation's PEG ratio

Avery Dennison Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.3084. 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 Avery Dennison 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.

However, it's sensible to consider Avery Dennison Corporation's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Avery Dennison Corporation's EBITDA

Avery Dennison Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $973.1 million.

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

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Avery Dennison Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Avery Dennison Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Avery Dennison Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avery Dennison Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avery Dennison Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 380399.31034483). Avery Dennison Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.45. In other words for every 100,000 Avery Dennison Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1450 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Avery Dennison Corporation's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Avery Dennison Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avery Dennison Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avery Dennison Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avery Dennison Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avery Dennison Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0075% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avery Dennison Corporation shares, roughly 8 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Avery Dennison Corporation.

Avery Dennison Corporation share dividends

36%

Dividend payout ratio: 35.92% of net profits

Recently Avery Dennison Corporation has paid out, on average, around 35.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Avery Dennison Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Avery Dennison Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.48 per share.

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

Have Avery Dennison Corporation's shares ever split?

Avery Dennison Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 23 December 1996. 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 Avery Dennison Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Avery Dennison Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Avery Dennison Corporation's share price.

Avery Dennison Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Avery Dennison Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $75.8638 up to $164.11. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
