Is Nordstrom stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Nordstrom's P/E ratio

Nordstrom's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Nordstrom shares trade at around 11x 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.

Nordstrom's PEG ratio

Nordstrom's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2928. 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 Nordstrom's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Nordstrom's EBITDA

Nordstrom's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.3 billion.

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

Nordstrom's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Nordstrom.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Nordstrom's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 20.52

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Nordstrom's overall score of 20.52 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 13rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Nordstrom is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Nordstrom's environmental score

Environmental score: 5.47/100

Nordstrom's environmental score of 5.47 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nordstrom is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Nordstrom's social score

Social score: 13.82/100

Nordstrom's social score of 13.82 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nordstrom is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Nordstrom's governance score

Governance score: 10.23/100

Nordstrom's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Nordstrom is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Nordstrom's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Nordstrom scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Nordstrom has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Nordstrom share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 15.57% of net profits

Recently Nordstrom has paid out, on average, around 15.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nordstrom shareholders could enjoy a 3.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nordstrom's case, that would currently equate to about $0.19 per share.

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

Nordstrom's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Nordstrom's shares ever split?

Nordstrom's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 June 2005. 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 Nordstrom shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nordstrom shares which in turn could have impacted Nordstrom's share price.

Nordstrom share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nordstrom's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.377 up to $37.9167. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

JWN.US volatility(beta: 2.26)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Nordstrom's is 2.2618. This would suggest that Nordstrom's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
