Is Jabil Circuit stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Jabil Circuit stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Jabil Circuit's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Jabil Circuit's P/E ratio
Jabil Circuit's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Jabil Circuit shares trade at around 10x 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.
Jabil Circuit's PEG ratio
Jabil Circuit's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.91. 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 Jabil Circuit's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Jabil Circuit's EBITDA

Jabil Circuit share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 4.73% of net profits
Recently Jabil Circuit has paid out, on average, around 4.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.57% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Jabil Circuit shareholders could enjoy a 0.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Jabil Circuit's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.
While Jabil Circuit's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Jabil Circuit is investing more in its future growth.
Jabil Circuit's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Jabil Circuit's shares ever split?
Jabil Circuit's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 March 2000. 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 Jabil Circuit shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Jabil Circuit shares which in turn could have impacted Jabil Circuit's share price.
Jabil Circuit share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Jabil Circuit's shares have ranged in value from as little as $48.7367 up to $71.8192. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Jabil Circuit's is 1.3971. This would suggest that Jabil Circuit's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
