Is it a good time to buy Campbell Soup Company 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 Campbell Soup Company under- or over-valued?

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

Campbell Soup Company's P/E ratio

Campbell Soup Company'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, Campbell Soup Company 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.

However, Campbell Soup Company's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the packaged foods industry or those of similar companies.

Campbell Soup Company's PEG ratio

Campbell Soup Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0376. 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 Campbell Soup Company'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 Campbell Soup Company's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Campbell Soup Company's EBITDA

Campbell Soup Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $1.7 billion.

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

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

  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "CPB.US"

There are currently 19.2 million Campbell Soup Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Campbell Soup Company's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% down from 19.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Campbell Soup Company shares can be evaluated.

Campbell Soup Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Campbell Soup Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Campbell Soup Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Campbell Soup Company shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). Campbell Soup Company's SIR currently stands at 9.03. In other words for every 100,000 Campbell Soup Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9030 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Campbell Soup Company's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Campbell Soup Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Campbell Soup Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Campbell Soup Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Campbell Soup Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Campbell Soup Company shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0982% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Campbell Soup Company shares, roughly 98 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Campbell Soup Company.

Campbell Soup Company share dividends

44%

Dividend payout ratio: 44.24% of net profits

Recently Campbell Soup Company has paid out, on average, around 44.24% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Campbell Soup Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Campbell Soup Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.48 per share.

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

Campbell Soup Company's most recent dividend payout was on 1 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

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

Have Campbell Soup Company's shares ever split?

Campbell Soup Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 March 1997. 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 Campbell Soup Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Campbell Soup Company shares which in turn could have impacted Campbell Soup Company's share price.

Campbell Soup Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Campbell Soup Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.5149 up to $53.2758. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CPB.US volatility(beta: 0.51)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

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