Is Johnson-and-Johnson stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Johnson-and-Johnson shareholders could enjoy a 2.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Johnson-and-Johnson's case, that would currently equate to about $4.45 per share.
While Johnson-and-Johnson's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Johnson-and-Johnson may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Johnson-and-Johnson's most recent dividend payout was on 6 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Johnson-and-Johnson's shares ever split?
Johnson-and-Johnson's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 June 2001. 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 Johnson-and-Johnson shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Johnson-and-Johnson shares which in turn could have impacted Johnson-and-Johnson's share price.
Johnson-and-Johnson share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Johnson-and-Johnson's shares have ranged in value from as little as $152.7074 up to $183.0782. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
