Is Amdocs under- or over-valued?

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

Amdocs's P/E ratio

Amdocs's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Amdocs shares trade at around 19x 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.

Amdocs's PEG ratio

Amdocs's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5242. 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 Amdocs's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Amdocs's EBITDA

Amdocs's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $826.6 million.

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

Amdocs'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.

Total ESG risk: 20.97

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Amdocs's overall score of 20.97 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 21st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Amdocs 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.).

Amdocs's environmental score

Environmental score: 6.71/100

Amdocs's environmental score of 6.71 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Amdocs is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Amdocs's social score

Social score: 15.33/100

Amdocs's social score of 15.33 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Amdocs is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Amdocs's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Amdocs is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Amdocs's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Amdocs scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that Amdocs has managed to keep its nose clean.

Amdocs share dividends

40%

Dividend payout ratio: 39.76% of net profits

Recently Amdocs has paid out, on average, around 39.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Amdocs shareholders could enjoy a 2.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Amdocs's case, that would currently equate to about $1.44 per share.

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

Amdocs's most recent dividend payout was on 28 April 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
