Is Gen Digital stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Gen Digital's P/E ratio

Gen Digital'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, Gen Digital 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.

Gen Digital's PEG ratio

Gen Digital's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0174. 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 Gen Digital's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Gen Digital's EBITDA

Gen Digital's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.3 billion.

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

Gen Digital share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 27.78% of net profits

Recently Gen Digital has paid out, on average, around 27.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Gen Digital shareholders could enjoy a 2.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Gen Digital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

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

Gen Digital's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Gen Digital's shares ever split?

Gen Digital's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 December 2004. 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 Gen Digital shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gen Digital shares which in turn could have impacted Gen Digital's share price.

Gen Digital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Gen Digital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.008 up to $30.2912. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GEN.US volatility(beta: 1.03)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 Gen Digital's is 1.031. This would suggest that Gen Digital'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).
