Is AbbVie stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing AbbVie stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AbbVie's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AbbVie's P/E ratio
AbbVie's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, AbbVie shares trade at around 32x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
AbbVie's PEG ratio
AbbVie's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2788. 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 AbbVie's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
AbbVie's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $28.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a AbbVie's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

AbbVie's environmental, social and governance track record

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
AbbVie's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 34.86
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and AbbVie's overall score of 34.86 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 66th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like AbbVie is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
AbbVie's environmental score
Environmental score: 4.96/100
AbbVie's environmental score of 4.96 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that AbbVie is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
AbbVie's social score

AbbVie's controversy score
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. AbbVie scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that AbbVie hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

AbbVie share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 43.14% of net profits
Recently AbbVie has paid out, on average, around 43.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AbbVie shareholders could enjoy a 4.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AbbVie's case, that would currently equate to about $5.2 per share.
While AbbVie's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that AbbVie may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
AbbVie's most recent dividend payout was on 14 February 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
AbbVie share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, AbbVie's shares have ranged in value from as little as $97.2787 up to $136.7312. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while AbbVie's is 0.8241. This would suggest that AbbVie's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
