Is FLIR Systems stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

FLIR Systems's P/E ratio

FLIR Systems's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, FLIR Systems shares trade at around 32x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

FLIR Systems's PEG ratio

FLIR Systems's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.2773. 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 FLIR Systems's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


FLIR Systems's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $455.3 million.

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

FLIR Systems share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 26.67% of net profits

Recently FLIR Systems has paid out, on average, around 26.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FLIR Systems shareholders could enjoy a 1.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FLIR Systems's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.

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

FLIR Systems's most recent dividend payout was on 3 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have FLIR Systems's shares ever split?

FLIR Systems's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 December 2007. 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 FLIR Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for FLIR Systems shares which in turn could have impacted FLIR Systems's share price.

FLIR Systems share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, FLIR Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0 up to $0. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FLIR.US volatility(beta: 1.56)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 FLIR Systems's is 1.5583. This would suggest that FLIR Systems's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
