Is Bruker Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Bruker Corporation's P/E ratio

Bruker Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, Bruker Corporation shares trade at around 35x 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.

Bruker Corporation's PEG ratio

Bruker Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.64. 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 Bruker Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Bruker Corporation's EBITDA

Bruker Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $524.6 million.

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

Bruker Corporation share dividends

9%

Dividend payout ratio: 8.87% of net profits

Recently Bruker Corporation has paid out, on average, around 8.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bruker Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bruker Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.17 per share.

While Bruker Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Bruker Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Bruker Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 16 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Bruker Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bruker Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $55.7553 up to $92.1673. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BRKR.US volatility(beta: 1.25)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Bruker Corporation's is 1.25. This would suggest that Bruker Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
