Is McAfee stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

McAfee's P/E ratio

McAfee's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 0x. In other words, McAfee shares trade at around 0x 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.

However, McAfee's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the software-infrastructure industry or those of similar companies.


McAfee's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $652 million.

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

McAfee share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 3.69% of net profits

Recently McAfee has paid out, on average, around 3.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), McAfee shareholders could enjoy a 1.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In McAfee's case, that would currently equate to about $0.432 per share.

While McAfee's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that McAfee is investing more in its future growth.

McAfee's most recent dividend payout was on 7 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

McAfee's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
