Is Salesforce-com stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Salesforce-com's P/E ratio

Salesforce-com's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 98x. In other words, Salesforce-com shares trade at around 98x 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.

Salesforce-com's PEG ratio

Salesforce-com's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.358. 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 Salesforce-com's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Salesforce-com's EBITDA

Salesforce-com's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.6 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Salesforce-com's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Salesforce-com'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 Salesforce-com.

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

Salesforce-com's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 13.24

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Salesforce-com's overall score of 13.24 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Salesforce-com 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.).

Salesforce-com's environmental score

Environmental score: 0.97/100

Salesforce-com's environmental score of 0.97 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Salesforce-com is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Salesforce-com's social score

Social score: 5.99/100

Salesforce-com's social score of 5.99 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Salesforce-com is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Salesforce-com's governance score

Governance score: 4.28/100

Salesforce-com's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Salesforce-com is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Salesforce-com's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Salesforce-com scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Salesforce-com has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Salesforce.com Inc was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 13.24
Total ESG percentile 5.72
Environmental score 0.97

Salesforce-com share dividends

We're not expecting Salesforce-com to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Salesforce-com's shares ever split?

Salesforce-com's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 17 April 2013. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Salesforce-com shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Salesforce-com shares which in turn could have impacted Salesforce-com's share price.

Salesforce-com share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Salesforce-com's shares have ranged in value from as little as $126.34 up to $234.49. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CRM.US volatility(beta: 1.13)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 Salesforce-com's is 1.1294. This would suggest that Salesforce-com'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).
