Is PerkinElmer stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing PerkinElmer stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PerkinElmer's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PerkinElmer's P/E ratio
PerkinElmer's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, PerkinElmer shares trade at around 31x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
PerkinElmer's PEG ratio
PerkinElmer's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.0183. 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 PerkinElmer's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
PerkinElmer's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a PerkinElmer's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

PerkinElmer share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 3.53% of net profits
Recently PerkinElmer has paid out, on average, around 3.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PerkinElmer shareholders could enjoy a 0.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PerkinElmer's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.
While PerkinElmer's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that PerkinElmer is investing more in its future growth.
PerkinElmer's most recent dividend payout was on 11 May 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 April 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have PerkinElmer's shares ever split?
PerkinElmer's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 June 2001. 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 PerkinElmer shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PerkinElmer shares which in turn could have impacted PerkinElmer's share price.
PerkinElmer share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, PerkinElmer's shares have ranged in value from as little as $113.3379 up to $181.2914. 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 PerkinElmer's is 1.0958. This would suggest that PerkinElmer'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).
