Is ASML Holding stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing ASML Holding stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ASML Holding's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ASML Holding's P/E ratio
ASML Holding's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, ASML Holding shares trade at around 30x 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.
ASML Holding's PEG ratio
ASML Holding's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7031. 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 ASML Holding's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ASML Holding's EBITDA
ASML Holding's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $8.9 billion.

ASML Holding share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 31.65% of net profits
Recently ASML Holding has paid out, on average, around 31.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ASML Holding shareholders could enjoy a 1.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ASML Holding's case, that would currently equate to about $4.51 per share.
While ASML Holding's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ASML Holding may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
ASML Holding's most recent dividend payout was on 9 August 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 July 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have ASML Holding's shares ever split?
ASML Holding's shares were split on a 8:9 basis on 30 September 2007. So if you had owned 9 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 8 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ASML Holding shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 12.5% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for ASML Holding shares which in turn could have impacted ASML Holding's share price.
