Is Fresenius Medical Care Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Fresenius Medical Care Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's P/E ratio
Fresenius Medical Care 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 20x. In other words, Fresenius Medical Care Corporation shares trade at around 20x 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.
Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's PEG ratio
Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0582. 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 Fresenius Medical Care 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.

Fresenius Medical Care Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 41.76% of net profits
Recently Fresenius Medical Care Corporation has paid out, on average, around 41.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fresenius Medical Care Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.12 per share.
While Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Fresenius Medical Care Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 1 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's shares ever split?
Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 December 2012. 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 Fresenius Medical Care Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fresenius Medical Care Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's share price.
Fresenius Medical Care Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.4528 up to $29.8342. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's is 0.9021. This would suggest that Fresenius Medical Care Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
