Is Chubb stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Chubb stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Chubb's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Chubb's P/E ratio
Chubb's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Chubb shares trade at around 11x recent earnings.
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.
Chubb's PEG ratio
Chubb's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.7155. 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 Chubb's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Chubb's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $7.8 billion.

Chubb share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 22.53% of net profits
Recently Chubb has paid out, on average, around 22.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chubb shareholders could enjoy a 1.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chubb's case, that would currently equate to about $3.23 per share.
While Chubb's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Chubb is investing more in its future growth.

Have Chubb's shares ever split?
Chubb's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 2 March 1998. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Chubb shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chubb shares which in turn could have impacted Chubb's share price.
Chubb share price volatility
