Is Chubb under- or over-valued?

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

Chubb's P/E ratio

Chubb's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Chubb shares trade at around 10x 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.

Chubb's PEG ratio

Chubb's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8672. 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 Chubb's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Chubb's EBITDA

Chubb's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $8.1 billion.

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

Chubb'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 Chubb.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Chubb's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 29.43

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Chubb's overall score of 29.43 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 40th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Chubb's environmental score

Environmental score: 7.62/100

Chubb's environmental score of 7.62 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Chubb is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Chubb's social score

Social score: 15.36/100

Chubb's social score of 15.36 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Chubb is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Chubb's governance score

Governance score: 15.45/100

Chubb's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Chubb is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Chubb's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Chubb scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Chubb has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Chubb share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 26.59% of net profits

Recently Chubb has paid out, on average, around 26.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chubb shareholders could enjoy a 1.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chubb's case, that would currently equate to about $3.16 per share.

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

Chubb's most recent dividend payout was on 7 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Chubb's shares ever split?

Chubb's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 3 March 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Chubb shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chubb shares which in turn could have impacted Chubb's share price.

Chubb share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Chubb's shares have ranged in value from as little as $141.4574 up to $201.32. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CB.US volatility(beta: 0.82)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Chubb's is 0.8231. This would suggest that Chubb's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
