Is Teradyne stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Teradyne stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Teradyne's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Teradyne's P/E ratio
Teradyne's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Teradyne shares trade at around 31x 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.
Teradyne's PEG ratio
Teradyne's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.37. 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 Teradyne's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Teradyne share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 7.01% of net profits
Recently Teradyne has paid out, on average, around 7.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Teradyne shareholders could enjoy a 0.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Teradyne's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
While Teradyne's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Teradyne is investing more in its future growth.
Teradyne's most recent dividend payout was on 16 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Teradyne's shares ever split?
Teradyne's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 August 1999. 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 Teradyne shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Teradyne shares which in turn could have impacted Teradyne's share price.
Teradyne share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Teradyne's shares have ranged in value from as little as $103.8145 up to $168.91. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Teradyne's is 1.3822. This would suggest that Teradyne's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
