Is Hologic stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Hologic's P/E ratio

Hologic's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Hologic shares trade at around 15x 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.

Hologic's PEG ratio

Hologic's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9333. 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 Hologic's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Hologic's EBITDA

Hologic's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.1 billion.

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

Hologic'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 Hologic.

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

Hologic's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 28.6

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Hologic's overall score of 28.6 (as at 12/31/2018) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 58th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Hologic's environmental score

Environmental score: 2.95/100

Hologic's environmental score of 2.95 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Hologic is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Hologic's social score

Social score: 11.28/100

Hologic's social score of 11.28 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Hologic is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Hologic's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Hologic scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Hologic has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Hologic share dividends

We're not expecting Hologic to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Hologic's shares ever split?

Hologic's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 April 2008. 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 Hologic shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hologic shares which in turn could have impacted Hologic's share price.

Hologic share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hologic's shares have ranged in value from as little as $59.78 up to $81.97. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HOLX.US volatility(beta: 1.02)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 Hologic's is 1.0213. This would suggest that Hologic'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).
