Is Corteva under- or over-valued?

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

Corteva's P/E ratio

Corteva's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Corteva shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Corteva's PEG ratio

Corteva's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.035. 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 Corteva's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Corteva's EBITDA

Corteva's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.2 billion.

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

Shorting Corteva shares

There are currently 11.0 million Corteva shares held short by investors – that's known as Corteva's "short interest". This figure is 12.2% down from 12.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Corteva shares can be evaluated.

Corteva's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Corteva's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Corteva shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Corteva shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). Corteva's SIR currently stands at 3.97. In other words for every 100,000 Corteva shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3970 shares are currently held short.

However Corteva's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Corteva shares, or, against the total number of tradable Corteva shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Corteva's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Corteva shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Corteva shares, roughly 17 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Corteva.

Corteva share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 28.8% of net profits

Recently Corteva has paid out, on average, around 28.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Corteva shareholders could enjoy a 1.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Corteva's case, that would currently equate to about $0.53 per share.

While Corteva's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Corteva may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Corteva's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Corteva share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Corteva's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.7756 up to $49.6837. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CTVA.US volatility(beta: 0.83)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 Corteva's is 0.8252. This would suggest that Corteva's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
