Is Kellogg 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.
Kellogg 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 18x. In other words, Kellogg Company shares trade at around 18x 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, Kellogg Company's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the packaged foods industry or those of similar companies.
Kellogg Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4508. 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 Kellogg 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 Kellogg Company's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.
Kellogg Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $2.4 billion (£1.7 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Kellogg Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.

|Operating margin TTM||13.36%|
|Gross profit TTM||$4.7 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||6.37%|

|Market capitalisation||$23 billion|

Kellogg Company share dividends
Dividend yield: 3.47% of stock value
Forward annual dividend yield: 3.47% of stock value
Dividend payout ratio: 55% of net profits
Kellogg Company has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 3.47% of its share value annually.
Kellogg Company has paid out, on average, around 55% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.47% 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 3.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kellogg Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.3 per share.
Kellogg Company'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.
Kellogg Company's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Kellogg Company's shares ever split?
Kellogg Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 August 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kellogg Company shares which in turn could have impacted Kellogg Company's share price.
