Is Unilever PLC ADR stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

Unilever PLC ADR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 73.44% of net profits

Recently Unilever PLC ADR has paid out, on average, around 73.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Unilever PLC ADR shareholders could enjoy a 4.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Unilever PLC ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $1.739 per share.

Unilever PLC ADR's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Unilever PLC ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 15 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Unilever PLC ADR's shares ever split?

Unilever PLC ADR's shares were split on a 9:5 basis on 24 May 2006. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 9 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Unilever PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 44.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Unilever PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted Unilever PLC ADR's share price.
