Is McBride 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

McBride's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, McBride shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). 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, McBride's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the household & personal products industry or those of similar companies.

EBITDA

McBride's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £41.3 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a McBride'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.

McBride share dividends

1.4%

Dividend yield: 1.38% of stock value

1.4%

Forward annual dividend yield: 1.4% of stock value

14.1%

Dividend payout ratio: 14.1% of net profits

McBride has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 1.38% of its share value annually.

McBride has paid out, on average, around 14.1% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.4% 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 1.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In McBride's case, that would currently equate to about 1.1p per share.

While McBride's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that the company is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

McBride's dividend yield is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

Have McBride's shares ever split?

McBride's shares were split on a 100:103 basis on 28 October 2013. So if you had owned 103 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 100 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your McBride shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for McBride shares which in turn could have impacted McBride's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, McBride's shares have ranged in value from as little as 57.9464p up to 97.8p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MCB.LSE volatility(beta: 0.97)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while McBride's is 0.9658. This would suggest that McBride's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

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