Is Ball Corporation under- or over-valued?

Ball Corporation's P/E ratio

Ball Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 37x. In other words, Ball Corporation shares trade at around 37x 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.

Ball Corporation's PEG ratio

Ball Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.9914. 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 Ball Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ball Corporation's EBITDA

Ball Corporation's environmental, social and governance track record

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

Ball Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 11.02/100

Ball Corporation's environmental score of 11.02 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Ball Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Ball Corporation's social score

Social score: 1.21/100

Ball Corporation share dividends

21%

Dividend payout ratio: 21.02% of net profits

Recently Ball Corporation has paid out, on average, around 21.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ball Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ball Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.65 per share.

While Ball Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ball Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Ball Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ball Corporation's shares ever split?

Ball Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 May 2017. 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 Ball Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ball Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Ball Corporation's share price.

Ball Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ball Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $77.6235 up to $97.8831. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
