Is Autodesk under- or over-valued?
Valuing Autodesk stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Autodesk's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Autodesk's P/E ratio
Autodesk's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 75x. In other words, Autodesk shares trade at around 75x 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.
Autodesk's PEG ratio
Autodesk's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1312. 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 Autodesk's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Autodesk's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $990.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Autodesk's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$4.7 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||19.09%|
|Gross profit TTM||$4 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||7.23%|
|Return on equity TTM||53.97%|
|Market capitalisation||$40.3 billion|

Autodesk's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Autodesk.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Autodesk's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 20.93
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Autodesk's overall score of 20.93 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 20th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Autodesk 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.).
Autodesk's environmental score
Environmental score: 0.28/100
Autodesk's environmental score of 0.28 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Autodesk is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Autodesk's social score
Social score: 12.27/100
Autodesk's social score of 12.27 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Autodesk is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Autodesk's governance score
Governance score: 4.87/100
Autodesk's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Autodesk is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Autodesk share dividends
We're not expecting Autodesk to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Autodesk's shares ever split?
Autodesk's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 December 2004. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Autodesk shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Autodesk shares which in turn could have impacted Autodesk's share price.
Autodesk share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Autodesk's shares have ranged in value from as little as $163.2 up to $335.48. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Autodesk's is 1.527. This would suggest that Autodesk's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
