Is ADT stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

ADT's EBITDA

ADT's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.3 billion.

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

Market capitalisation $7.9 billion

ADT share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 116.67% of net profits

Recently ADT has paid out, on average, around 116.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.6% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ADT shareholders could enjoy a 1.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ADT's case, that would currently equate to about $0.14 per share.

ADT'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.

ADT's most recent dividend payout was on 3 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

ADT share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ADT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.9537 up to $10.065. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ADT.US volatility(beta: 1.79)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while ADT's is 1.7949. This would suggest that ADT's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
