Is Intuitive Surgical stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Intuitive Surgical's P/E ratio

Intuitive Surgical's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 69x. In other words, Intuitive Surgical shares trade at around 69x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Intuitive Surgical's PEG ratio

Intuitive Surgical's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.2734. 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 Intuitive Surgical's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Intuitive Surgical's EBITDA

Have Intuitive Surgical's shares ever split?

Intuitive Surgical's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 4 October 2021. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Intuitive Surgical shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Intuitive Surgical shares which in turn could have impacted Intuitive Surgical's share price.

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Intuitive Surgical's is 1.3286. This would suggest that Intuitive Surgical's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
