Is Bristol-Myers Squibb Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

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.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.96 per share.

While Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Bristol-Myers Squibb Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Have Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's shares ever split?

Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's shares were split on a 1000000:95 basis on 6 August 2001. So if you had owned 95 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1000000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares which in turn could have impacted Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's share price.
