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 16x. In other words, Textron 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.

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 0.9621. 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

Textron's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.5 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

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Textron's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 37.31

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Textron's overall score of 37.31 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 79th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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's environmental score

Environmental score: 6.49/100

Textron share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 4.15% of net profits

Recently Textron has paid out, on average, around 4.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.13% 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 0.13% 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 30 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 September 2022 (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 $57.0921 up to $79.1087. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TXT.US volatility(beta: 1.55)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

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 1.5509. 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).
