Is Autodesk stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Autodesk stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Autodesk's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Autodesk's P/E ratio
Autodesk'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, Autodesk 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.
Autodesk's PEG ratio
Autodesk's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3941. 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 Autodesk's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Autodesk's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $784.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Autodesk's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$4.2 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||16.37%|
|Gross profit TTM||$3.5 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||5.96%|

Autodesk's environmental, social and governance track record

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Autodesk 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.).

Autodesk share dividends
We're not expecting Autodesk to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Autodesk's shares ever split?
Autodesk's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 December 2004. 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 Autodesk shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Autodesk shares which in turn could have impacted Autodesk's share price.
Autodesk share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Autodesk's shares have ranged in value from as little as $245.05 up to $344.39. 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 Autodesk's is 1.408. This would suggest that Autodesk's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
