Is Crown stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Crown's P/E ratio

Crown'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, Crown 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.

Crown's PEG ratio

Crown's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.6633. 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 Crown's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Crown's EBITDA

Crown's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.1 billion.

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

Crown'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 Crown.

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

Crown's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 14.23

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Crown's overall score of 14.23 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Crown's environmental score

Environmental score: 6.78/100

Crown's environmental score of 6.78 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Crown is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Crown's social score

Social score: 2.16/100

Crown's social score of 2.16 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Crown is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Crown's governance score

Governance score: 3.29/100

Crown's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Crown is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Crown's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

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

Crown share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 10.67% of net profits

Recently Crown has paid out, on average, around 10.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Crown shareholders could enjoy a 0.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Crown's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

While Crown's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Crown is investing more in its future growth.

Crown's most recent dividend payout was on 25 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Crown's shares ever split?

Crown's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 31 May 1992. 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 Crown shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Crown shares which in turn could have impacted Crown's share price.

Crown share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Crown's shares have ranged in value from as little as $84.99 up to $114.1059. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CCK.US volatility(beta: 1.17)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 Crown's is 1.1733. This would suggest that Crown'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).
