Is AT-and-T stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing AT-and-T stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AT-and-T's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

AT-and-T's P/E ratio

AT-and-T's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, AT-and-T shares trade at around 6x 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.

AT-and-T's PEG ratio

AT-and-T's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.6052. 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 AT-and-T's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

AT-and-T's EBITDA

AT-and-T's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $53 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a AT-and-T's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

AT-and-T's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like AT-and-T.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

AT-and-T's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 24.57

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and AT-and-T's overall score of 24.57 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 25th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like AT-and-T 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.).

AT-and-T's environmental score

Environmental score: 8.35/100

AT-and-T's environmental score of 8.35 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that AT-and-T is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

AT-and-T's social score

Social score: 15.4/100

AT-and-T's social score of 15.4 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that AT-and-T is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

AT-and-T's governance score

Governance score: 14.32/100

AT-and-T's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that AT-and-T is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

AT-and-T's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

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

AT-and-T share dividends

39%

Dividend payout ratio: 38.61% of net profits

Recently AT-and-T has paid out, on average, around 38.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AT-and-T shareholders could enjoy a 5.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AT-and-T's case, that would currently equate to about $1.353 per share.

While AT-and-T's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that AT-and-T may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

AT-and-T's most recent dividend payout was on 1 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AT-and-T's shares ever split?

AT-and-T's shares were split on a 1324:1000 basis on 11 April 2022. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1324 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AT-and-T shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 24.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AT-and-T shares which in turn could have impacted AT-and-T's share price.

AT-and-T share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AT-and-T's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.2542 up to $22.84. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

T.US volatility(beta: 0.73)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 AT-and-T's is 0.7321. This would suggest that AT-and-T's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
