Is DuPont de Nemours under- or over-valued?

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.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DuPont de Nemours shares can be evaluated.

In this case DuPont de Nemours's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DuPont de Nemours shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0111% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DuPont de Nemours shares, roughly 11 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 DuPont de Nemours.

DuPont de Nemours share dividends

35%

Dividend payout ratio: 34.88% of net profits

Recently DuPont de Nemours has paid out, on average, around 34.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), DuPont de Nemours shareholders could enjoy a 1.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In DuPont de Nemours's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

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

DuPont de Nemours's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have DuPont de Nemours's shares ever split?

DuPont de Nemours's shares were split on a 4725:10000 basis on 2 June 2019. So if you had owned 10000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4725 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your DuPont de Nemours shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 111.6% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for DuPont de Nemours shares which in turn could have impacted DuPont de Nemours's share price.

DuPont de Nemours share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, DuPont de Nemours's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$49.8417 up to US$86.5826. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DD.US volatility(beta: 1.3)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 DuPont de Nemours's is 1.3. This would suggest that DuPont de Nemours's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
