Is Paramount Global stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Paramount Global's P/E ratio

Paramount Global's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Paramount Global shares trade at around 4x 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.

Paramount Global's PEG ratio

Paramount Global's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7219. 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 Paramount Global's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Paramount Global's EBITDA

Paramount Global's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.4 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Paramount Global's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Paramount Global share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 27.35% of net profits

Recently Paramount Global has paid out, on average, around 27.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Paramount Global shareholders could enjoy a 2.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Paramount Global's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

While Paramount Global's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Paramount Global may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Paramount Global's most recent dividend payout was on 31 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Paramount Global's shares ever split?

Paramount Global's shares were split on 2 January 2006. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Paramount Global shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new INF% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Paramount Global shares which in turn could have impacted Paramount Global's share price.
