Is Oracle Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Oracle Corporation's P/E ratio

Oracle Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Oracle Corporation shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Oracle Corporation's PEG ratio

Oracle Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5173. 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 Oracle Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Oracle Corporation's EBITDA

Oracle Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $18.4 billion.

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

Oracle Corporation'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 Oracle Corporation.

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

Oracle Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 17.18

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Oracle Corporation's overall score of 17.18 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 17th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Oracle Corporation 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.).

Oracle Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 1.93/100

Oracle Corporation's environmental score of 1.93 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Oracle Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Oracle Corporation's social score

Social score: 10.18/100

Oracle Corporation's social score of 10.18 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Oracle Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Oracle Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 6.07/100

Oracle Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Oracle Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Oracle Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Oracle Corporation scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Oracle Corporation hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Oracle Corporation was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 17.18
Total ESG percentile 17.18
Environmental score 1.93

Oracle Corporation share dividends

26%

Dividend payout ratio: 26.07% of net profits

Recently Oracle Corporation has paid out, on average, around 26.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Oracle Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Oracle Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.

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

Oracle Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 23 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Oracle Corporation's shares ever split?

Oracle Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 October 2000. 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 Oracle Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Oracle Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Oracle Corporation's share price.

Oracle Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Oracle Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $60.2467 up to $90.095. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ORCL.US volatility(beta: 1)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 Oracle Corporation's is 1. This would suggest that Oracle Corporation'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).
