Is Textron stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Textron stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Textron's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Textron's P/E ratio
Textron's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 44x. In other words, Textron shares trade at around 44x 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.
Textron's PEG ratio
Textron's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5424. 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 Textron's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Textron's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Textron's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Textron's environmental, social and governance track record

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

Textron share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 2.59% of net profits
Recently Textron has paid out, on average, around 2.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Textron shareholders could enjoy a 0.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Textron's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.
While Textron's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Textron is investing more in its future growth.
Textron's most recent dividend payout was on 31 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Textron's shares ever split?
Textron's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 August 2007. 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 Textron shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Textron shares which in turn could have impacted Textron's share price.
Textron share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Textron's shares have ranged in value from as little as $44.3061 up to $79.45. 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 Textron's is 1.7451. This would suggest that Textron's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
