Is Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's P/E ratio
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing shares trade at around 16x 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.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's PEG ratio
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7522. 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 Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 28.76% of net profits
Recently Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing has paid out, on average, around 28.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing shareholders could enjoy a 2.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's case, that would currently equate to about $11 per share.
While Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's most recent dividend payout was on 12 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's shares ever split?
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's shares were split on a 1005:1000 basis on 15 July 2009. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1005 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing shares which in turn could have impacted Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's share price.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's shares have ranged in value from as little as $73.09 up to $143.2364. 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 Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's is 1.1217. This would suggest that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing'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).
