Is it a good time to buy Kraft Heinz stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Kraft Heinz under- or over-valued?

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

Kraft Heinz's P/E ratio

Kraft Heinz's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Kraft Heinz shares trade at around 16x 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.

Kraft Heinz's PEG ratio

Kraft Heinz's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0407. 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 Kraft Heinz's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Kraft Heinz's EBITDA

Kraft Heinz's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$6.4 billion (£5.1 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Kraft Heinz's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Kraft Heinz share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kraft Heinz's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$29.9869 up to US$39.6357. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KHC.US volatility(beta: 0.67)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Kraft Heinz's is 0.666. This would suggest that Kraft Heinz's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

Kraft Heinz share dividends

54%

Dividend payout ratio: 53.87% of net profits

Recently Kraft Heinz has paid out, on average, around 53.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kraft Heinz shareholders could enjoy a 4.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kraft Heinz's case, that would currently equate to about $1.6 per share.

Kraft Heinz'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.

Kraft Heinz's most recent dividend payout was on 28 March 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 March 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").
