Is Roper Technologies stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Roper Technologies's P/E ratio

Roper Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 46x. In other words, Roper Technologies shares trade at around 46x 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.

Roper Technologies's PEG ratio

Roper Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.287. 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 Roper Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Roper Technologies's EBITDA

Roper Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.2 billion.

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

Roper Technologies share dividends

18%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.79% of net profits

Recently Roper Technologies has paid out, on average, around 17.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Roper Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Roper Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $2.542 per share.

While Roper Technologies's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Roper Technologies is investing more in its future growth.

Roper Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 22 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Roper Technologies's shares ever split?

Roper Technologies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 August 2005. 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 Roper Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Roper Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Roper Technologies's share price.

Roper Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Roper Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $355.6573 up to $485.9246. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ROP.US volatility(beta: 1.05)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 Roper Technologies's is 1.0527. This would suggest that Roper Technologies'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).
