Is nVent Electric stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing nVent Electric stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of nVent Electric's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
nVent Electric's P/E ratio
nVent Electric's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, nVent Electric shares trade at around 18x 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.
nVent Electric's PEG ratio
nVent Electric's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9711. 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 nVent Electric's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
nVent Electric's EBITDA
nVent Electric's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $515.1 million.

nVent Electric share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 33.33% of net profits
Recently nVent Electric has paid out, on average, around 33.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), nVent Electric shareholders could enjoy a 2.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In nVent Electric's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.
While nVent Electric's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that nVent Electric may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
nVent Electric's most recent dividend payout was on 3 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 October 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
nVent Electric share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, nVent Electric's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.0326 up to $38.9385. 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 nVent Electric's is 1.439. This would suggest that nVent Electric's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
