Valuing Nucor stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nucor's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nucor's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Nucor shares trade at around 4x 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.
Nucor's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.75. 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 Nucor's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Nucor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $11.8 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Nucor's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
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 Nucor.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 38.15
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Nucor's overall score of 38.15 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 81st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Nucor 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.).
Environmental score: 16.03/100
Nucor's environmental score of 16.03 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nucor is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 12.79/100
Nucor's social score of 12.79 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nucor is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 10.82/100
Nucor's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Nucor is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Nucor scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Nucor hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||38.15|
|Total ESG percentile||80.78|
|Environmental score percentile||3|
|Social score percentile||3|
|Governance score percentile||3|
|Level of controversy||3|
Dividend payout ratio: 6.78% of net profits
Recently Nucor has paid out, on average, around 6.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nucor shareholders could enjoy a 1.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nucor's case, that would currently equate to about $1.81 per share.
While Nucor's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Nucor is investing more in its future growth.
Nucor's most recent dividend payout was on 10 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Nucor's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 May 2006. 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 Nucor shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nucor shares which in turn could have impacted Nucor's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Nucor's shares have ranged in value from as little as $86.6956 up to $187.9. 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 Nucor's is 1.2436. This would suggest that Nucor's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
