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.
Vertiv's P/E ratio
Vertiv's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1422x. In other words, Vertiv shares trade at around 1422x 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.
Vertiv's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $399.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Vertiv's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Vertiv share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 4% of net profits
Recently Vertiv has paid out, on average, around 4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.07% 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 0.07% 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 14 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Vertiv share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Vertiv's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.754 up to $23.0824. 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 Vertiv's is 1.9768. This would suggest that Vertiv's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
