Is Newell Brands 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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Newell Brands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Newell Brands shares can be evaluated.
Newell Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Newell Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Newell Brands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Newell Brands shares traded daily (recently around 2.7 million). Newell Brands's SIR currently stands at 3.42. In other words for every 100,000 Newell Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3420 shares are currently held short.
However Newell Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Newell Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Newell Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Newell Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Newell Brands shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0315% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Newell Brands shares, roughly 32 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 Newell Brands.

Newell Brands share dividends

Recently Newell Brands has paid out, on average, around 46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Newell Brands shareholders could enjoy a 3.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Newell Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.92 per share.
While Newell Brands's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Newell Brands may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Newell Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 3 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Newell Brands's shares ever split?
Newell Brands's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 September 1994. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Newell Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Newell Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Newell Brands's share price.
Newell Brands share price volatility
