Is Cigna Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Cigna Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cigna Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cigna Corporation's P/E ratio
Cigna 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 23x. In other words, Cigna Corporation shares trade at around 23x 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 Corporation's PEG ratio
Cigna Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.857. 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 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.

Cigna Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 20.82% of net profits
Recently Cigna Corporation has paid out, on average, around 20.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cigna Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cigna Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $3 per share.
While Cigna Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Cigna Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Have Cigna Corporation's shares ever split?
Cigna Corporation'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 Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cigna Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Cigna Corporation's share price.
Cigna Corporation share price volatility
