Is Weyerhaeuser Company under- or over-valued?

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

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.

Weyerhaeuser Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.4049. 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 Weyerhaeuser Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Recently Weyerhaeuser Company has paid out, on average, around 29.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Weyerhaeuser Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Weyerhaeuser Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.

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

Have Weyerhaeuser Company's shares ever split?

Weyerhaeuser Company's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 2 June 1988. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Weyerhaeuser Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Weyerhaeuser Company shares which in turn could have impacted Weyerhaeuser Company's share price.

Weyerhaeuser Company share price volatility

This would suggest that Weyerhaeuser Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
