Is Kellanova under- or over-valued?

Valuing Kellanova stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kellanova's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Kellanova's P/E ratio

Kellanova's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Kellanova shares trade at around 22x 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.

Kellanova's PEG ratio

Kellanova's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.9851. 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 Kellanova's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Kellanova's EBITDA

Kellanova's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$2.1 billion (£1.7 billion).

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

Kellanova share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kellanova's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$47.625 up to US$68.0884. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Kellanova's is 0.435. This would suggest that Kellanova's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

Kellanova share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 54.17% of net profits

Recently Kellanova has paid out, on average, around 54.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kellanova shareholders could enjoy a 4.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kellanova's case, that would currently equate to about $2.37 per share.

Kellanova'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.
