Is Procter-and-Gamble Company stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Procter-and-Gamble Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Procter-and-Gamble Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Procter-and-Gamble Company's P/E ratio
Procter-and-Gamble Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Procter-and-Gamble Company shares trade at around 25x 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.
Procter-and-Gamble Company's PEG ratio
Procter-and-Gamble Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.9823. 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 Procter-and-Gamble Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Procter-and-Gamble Company's EBITDA
Procter-and-Gamble Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $21 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Procter-and-Gamble Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Procter-and-Gamble Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 64.09% of net profits
Recently Procter-and-Gamble Company has paid out, on average, around 64.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Procter-and-Gamble Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Procter-and-Gamble Company's case, that would currently equate to about $3.61 per share.
Procter-and-Gamble Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Procter-and-Gamble Company's most recent dividend payout was on 14 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Procter-and-Gamble Company's shares ever split?
Procter-and-Gamble Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 June 2004. 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 Procter-and-Gamble Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Procter-and-Gamble Company shares which in turn could have impacted Procter-and-Gamble Company's share price.
Procter-and-Gamble Company share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Procter-and-Gamble Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $120.5619 up to $161.6663. 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 Procter-and-Gamble Company's is 0.3851. This would suggest that Procter-and-Gamble Company's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
