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.

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

Teradyne share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 10.33% of net profits

Recently Teradyne has paid out, on average, around 10.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.43% 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 0.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Teradyne's case, that would currently equate to about $0.44 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 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 February 2023 (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 $67.7306 up to $126.8457. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TER.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

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 1.5218. 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).
