Is Vertiv stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Vertiv stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vertiv's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

Vertiv share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 0.95% of net profits

Recently Vertiv has paid out, on average, around 0.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vertiv shareholders could enjoy a 0.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vertiv's case, that would currently equate to about $0.01 per share.

While Vertiv's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Vertiv is investing more in its future growth.

Vertiv's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
