Is Analog Devices stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Analog Devices stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Analog Devices's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Analog Devices's P/E ratio
Analog Devices's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 44x. In other words, Analog Devices shares trade at around 44x 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.
Analog Devices's PEG ratio
Analog Devices's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4718. 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 Analog Devices's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Analog Devices's EBITDA

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Analog Devices 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.).
Analog Devices's environmental score

Analog Devices share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 37.23% of net profits
Recently Analog Devices has paid out, on average, around 37.23% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Analog Devices shareholders could enjoy a 2.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Analog Devices's case, that would currently equate to about $2.9 per share.
While Analog Devices's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Analog Devices may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Analog Devices's most recent dividend payout was on 8 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Analog Devices's shares ever split?
Analog Devices's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 March 2000. 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 Analog Devices shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Analog Devices shares which in turn could have impacted Analog Devices's share price.
Analog Devices share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Analog Devices's shares have ranged in value from as little as $141.69 up to $189.4072. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Analog Devices's is 1.0658. This would suggest that Analog Devices's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
