Is Corning Incorporated stock undervalued or overvalued?

Corning Incorporated's P/E ratio

Corning Incorporated's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Corning Incorporated shares trade at around 17x 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.

Corning Incorporated's PEG ratio

Corning Incorporated's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2406. 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 Corning Incorporated's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Corning Incorporated 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.).

Corning Incorporated share dividends

50%

Dividend payout ratio: 50% of net profits

Recently Corning Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 50% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Corning Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 2.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Corning Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $1.05 per share.

Corning Incorporated'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.

Corning Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Corning Incorporated's shares ever split?

Corning Incorporated's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 3 October 2000. 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 Corning Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Corning Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Corning Incorporated's share price.

Corning Incorporated share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Corning Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.7463 up to $42.1697. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GLW.US volatility(beta: 1.07)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Corning Incorporated's is 1.0701. This would suggest that Corning Incorporated's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
