Is Stryker Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Stryker Corporation's P/E ratio

Stryker 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 39x. In other words, Stryker Corporation shares trade at around 39x 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.

Stryker Corporation's PEG ratio

Stryker Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8533. 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 Stryker 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.

Stryker Corporation's EBITDA

Stryker Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.5 billion.

Stryker 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 Stryker Corporation.

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

Stryker Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 33.93

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Stryker Corporation's overall score of 33.93 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 71st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Stryker Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 3.06/100

Stryker Corporation's environmental score of 3.06 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Stryker Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Stryker Corporation's social score

Social score: 14.68/100

Stryker Corporation's social score of 14.68 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Stryker Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Stryker Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 8.19/100

Stryker Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Stryker Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Stryker Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

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

Stryker Corporation share dividends

45%

Dividend payout ratio: 44.72% of net profits

Recently Stryker Corporation has paid out, on average, around 44.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Stryker Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Stryker Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.78 per share.

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

Stryker Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Stryker Corporation's shares ever split?

Stryker Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 May 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 Stryker Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stryker Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Stryker Corporation's share price.

Stryker Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Stryker Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $187.6183 up to $280.46. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SYK.US volatility(beta: 0.95)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 Stryker Corporation's is 0.9463. This would suggest that Stryker Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
