Is Nasdaq stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Revenue TTM $6.2 billion
Operating margin TTM 27.21%
Gross profit TTM $3.6 billion
Return on assets TTM 5.17%
Return on equity TTM 17.87%

Market capitalisation $25.8 billion

Nasdaq share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 29.96% of net profits

Recently Nasdaq has paid out, on average, around 29.96% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nasdaq shareholders could enjoy a 1.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nasdaq's case, that would currently equate to about $0.78 per share.

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

Nasdaq's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Nasdaq's shares ever split?

Nasdaq's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 28 August 2022. 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 Nasdaq shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nasdaq shares which in turn could have impacted Nasdaq's share price.

Nasdaq share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nasdaq's shares have ranged in value from as little as $46.3018 up to $69.22. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NDAQ.US volatility(beta: 0.97)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Nasdaq's is 0.9656. This would suggest that Nasdaq's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
