Is Hewlett Packard Enterprise stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Hewlett Packard Enterprise's P/E ratio

Hewlett Packard Enterprise's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Hewlett Packard Enterprise shares trade at around 5x 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.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise's PEG ratio

Hewlett Packard Enterprise's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7436. 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 Hewlett Packard Enterprise's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise share dividends

24%

Dividend payout ratio: 24.49% of net profits

Recently Hewlett Packard Enterprise has paid out, on average, around 24.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hewlett Packard Enterprise shareholders could enjoy a 3.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hewlett Packard Enterprise's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

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

Hewlett Packard Enterprise's most recent dividend payout was on 7 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Hewlett Packard Enterprise's shares ever split?

Hewlett Packard Enterprise's shares were split on a 1289:1000 basis on 31 August 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1289 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hewlett Packard Enterprise shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 22.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hewlett Packard Enterprise shares which in turn could have impacted Hewlett Packard Enterprise's share price.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hewlett Packard Enterprise's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.6909 up to $17.5107. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HPE.US volatility(beta: 1.14)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 Hewlett Packard Enterprise's is 1.1429. This would suggest that Hewlett Packard Enterprise'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).
