Is FedEx Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

FedEx Corporation's P/E ratio

FedEx 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 27x. In other words, FedEx Corporation shares trade at around 27x 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).

FedEx Corporation's PEG ratio

FedEx Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.881. 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 FedEx 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.

FedEx Corporation's EBITDA

FedEx Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$7.9 billion.

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

Shorting FedEx Corporation shares

There are currently 3.0 million FedEx Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as FedEx Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% down from 3.0 million last month.

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

FedEx Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

FedEx Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FedEx Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FedEx Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). FedEx Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.18. In other words for every 100,000 FedEx Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1180 shares are currently held short.

However FedEx Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FedEx Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable FedEx Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FedEx Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FedEx Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0137% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FedEx Corporation shares, roughly 14 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 FedEx Corporation.

FedEx Corporation'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 FedEx Corporation.

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

FedEx Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 19.26

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and FedEx Corporation's overall score of 19.26 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 25th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

FedEx Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 3.75/100

FedEx Corporation's environmental score of 3.75 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that FedEx Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

FedEx Corporation's social score

Social score: 10.02/100

FedEx Corporation's social score of 10.02 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that FedEx Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. FedEx Corporation scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that FedEx Corporation hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

FedEx Corporation share dividends

19%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.06% of net profits

Recently FedEx Corporation has paid out, on average, around 19.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FedEx Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FedEx Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.6 per share.

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

FedEx Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 28 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have FedEx Corporation's shares ever split?

FedEx Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 May 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your FedEx Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for FedEx Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted FedEx Corporation's share price.

FedEx Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, FedEx Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $87.818 up to $304.977. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FDX.US volatility(beta: 1.31)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 FedEx Corporation's is 1.3104. This would suggest that FedEx Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
