Is Griffon 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.

P/E ratio

Griffon's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Griffon shares trade at around 16x 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.

PEG ratio

Griffon's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.36. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.

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

EBITDA

Griffon's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $428.4 million (£0.0 million).

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

Griffon share dividends

1.0%

Dividend yield: 1% of stock value

1.0%

Forward annual dividend yield: 1% of stock value

61.6%

Dividend payout ratio: 61.62% of net profits

Griffon has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 1.00% of its share value annually.

Griffon has paid out, on average, around 61.62% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1% 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 1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Griffon's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.

Griffon's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Griffon's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Griffon's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.1853 up to $40.88. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GFF.US volatility(beta: 1.52)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 Griffon's is 1.5204. This would suggest that Griffon's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
