Is Cigna stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Cigna stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cigna's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cigna's P/E ratio
Cigna's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Cigna shares trade at around 15x 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.
Cigna's PEG ratio
Cigna's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2169. 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 Cigna's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Cigna's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $9.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Cigna's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Cigna share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 24.52% of net profits
Recently Cigna has paid out, on average, around 24.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cigna shareholders could enjoy a 1.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cigna's case, that would currently equate to about $4.36 per share.
While Cigna's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Cigna is investing more in its future growth.
Cigna's most recent dividend payout was on 20 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Cigna's shares ever split?
Cigna's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 4 June 2007. 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 Cigna shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cigna shares which in turn could have impacted Cigna's share price.
Cigna share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Cigna's shares have ranged in value from as little as $209.6868 up to $340.11. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Cigna's is 0.7042. This would suggest that Cigna's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
