Have Hasbro's shares ever split?
Hasbro's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 16 March 1999. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hasbro shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hasbro shares which in turn could have impacted Hasbro's share price.

Is Hasbro under- or over-valued?
Valuing Hasbro stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hasbro's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hasbro's PEG ratio
Hasbro's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4056. 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 Hasbro's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Hasbro's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$927.5 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Hasbro's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.
Hasbro share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Hasbro's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$42.66 up to US$72.4364. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Hasbro's is 0.745. This would suggest that Hasbro's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

Hasbro share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 81.16% of net profits
Recently Hasbro has paid out, on average, around 81.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hasbro shareholders could enjoy a 6.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hasbro's case, that would currently equate to about $2.8 per share.
Hasbro'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.
Hasbro's most recent dividend payout was on 15 November 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 October 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
