Is CME Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

CME Group's P/E ratio

CME Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, CME Group shares trade at around 24x 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.

CME Group's PEG ratio

CME Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.6929. 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 CME Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

CME Group's EBITDA

CME Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.3 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a CME Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

CME Group's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like CME Group.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

CME Group's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 16.2

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and CME Group's overall score of 16.2 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 10th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like CME Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

CME Group's environmental score

Environmental score: 6.41/100

CME Group's environmental score of 6.41 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that CME Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

CME Group's social score

Social score: 9.64/100

CME Group's social score of 9.64 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that CME Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

CME Group's governance score

Governance score: 8.65/100

CME Group's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that CME Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

CME Group's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. CME Group scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that CME Group has managed to keep its nose clean.

CME Group share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 123.76% of net profits

Recently CME Group has paid out, on average, around 123.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CME Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CME Group's case, that would currently equate to about $3.9 per share.

CME Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

CME Group's most recent dividend payout was on 17 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CME Group's shares ever split?

CME Group's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 22 July 2012. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CME Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CME Group shares which in turn could have impacted CME Group's share price.

CME Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CME Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $161.3333 up to $245.2584. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while CME Group's is 0.4046. This would suggest that CME Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
