Is TE Connectivity stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing TE Connectivity stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of TE Connectivity's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
TE Connectivity's P/E ratio
TE Connectivity'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, TE Connectivity 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.
TE Connectivity's PEG ratio
TE Connectivity's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3443. 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 TE Connectivity's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

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

TE Connectivity share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 29.22% of net profits
Recently TE Connectivity has paid out, on average, around 29.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TE Connectivity shareholders could enjoy a 1.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TE Connectivity's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.
While TE Connectivity's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that TE Connectivity may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
TE Connectivity's most recent dividend payout was on 2 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have TE Connectivity's shares ever split?
TE Connectivity's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 24 June 2009. So if you had owned 12 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your TE Connectivity shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for TE Connectivity shares which in turn could have impacted TE Connectivity's share price.
TE Connectivity share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, TE Connectivity's shares have ranged in value from as little as $112.01 up to $165.0553. 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 TE Connectivity's is 1.2677. This would suggest that TE Connectivity's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
