Is CSX Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

CSX Corporation's P/E ratio

CSX 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 16x. In other words, CSX Corporation shares trade at around 16x 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.

CSX Corporation's PEG ratio

CSX Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2963. 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 CSX 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.

CSX Corporation's EBITDA

CSX Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $7.3 billion.

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

CSX Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.39% of net profits

Recently CSX Corporation has paid out, on average, around 21.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CSX Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CSX Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

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

CSX Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CSX Corporation's shares ever split?

CSX Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 28 June 2021. 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 CSX Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CSX Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted CSX Corporation's share price.

CSX Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CSX Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.7186 up to $38.2689. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CSX.US volatility(beta: 1.25)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while CSX Corporation's is 1.2494. This would suggest that CSX Corporation'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).
