Is Cerner stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Cerner share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.84% of net profits

Recently Cerner has paid out, on average, around 21.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cerner shareholders could enjoy a 1.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cerner's case, that would currently equate to about $0.98 per share.

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

Cerner's most recent dividend payout was on 19 April 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Cerner's shares ever split?

Cerner's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 July 2013. 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 Cerner shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cerner shares which in turn could have impacted Cerner's share price.

Cerner share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cerner's shares have ranged in value from as little as $94.59 up to $95.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CERN.US volatility(beta: 0.76)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 Cerner's is 0.7613. This would suggest that Cerner's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
