Is Canon Inc ADR stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

Canon Inc ADR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 26.08% of net profits

Recently Canon Inc ADR has paid out, on average, around 26.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Canon Inc ADR shareholders could enjoy a 3.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Canon Inc ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $100 per share.

While Canon Inc ADR's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Canon Inc ADR may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Have Canon Inc ADR's shares ever split?

Canon Inc ADR's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 27 August 2006. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Canon Inc ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Canon Inc ADR shares which in turn could have impacted Canon Inc ADR's share price.
