Is Hubbell stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Hubbell's P/E ratio

Hubbell's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Hubbell shares trade at around 19x 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.

Hubbell's PEG ratio

Hubbell's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9322. 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 Hubbell's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Hubbell's EBITDA

Hubbell's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $705.4 million.

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

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

Hubbell's environmental score

Environmental score: 11.08/100

Hubbell's environmental score of 11.08 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Hubbell is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Hubbell's social score

Social score: 16.61/100

Hubbell's social score of 16.61 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Hubbell is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Hubbell share dividends

47%

Dividend payout ratio: 46.99% of net profits

Recently Hubbell has paid out, on average, around 46.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hubbell shareholders could enjoy a 2.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hubbell's case, that would currently equate to about $4.06 per share.

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

Hubbell's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Hubbell's shares ever split?

Hubbell's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 August 1996. 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 Hubbell shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hubbell shares which in turn could have impacted Hubbell's share price.

Hubbell share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hubbell's shares have ranged in value from as little as $168.7874 up to $209.4029. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HUBB.US volatility(beta: 1.13)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 Hubbell's is 1.132. This would suggest that Hubbell'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).
