Is Cigna Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Cigna Corporation's P/E ratio

Cigna 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 16x. In other words, Cigna Corporation shares trade at around 16x 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.

Cigna Corporation's PEG ratio

Cigna Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0665. 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 Cigna 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.

Cigna Corporation's EBITDA

Cigna Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $10.1 billion.

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

Cigna Corporation'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 Cigna Corporation.

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

Cigna Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 13.57

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Cigna Corporation's overall score of 13.57 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Cigna Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 0.94/100

Cigna Corporation's environmental score of 0.94 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Cigna Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Cigna Corporation's social score

Social score: 9.82/100

Cigna Corporation's social score of 9.82 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Cigna Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Cigna Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 3.69/100

Cigna Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Cigna Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Cigna Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Cigna Corporation scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Cigna Corporation hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Cigna Corporation share dividends

19%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.49% of net profits

Recently Cigna Corporation has paid out, on average, around 19.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cigna Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cigna Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $4.12 per share.

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

Cigna Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 23 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Cigna Corporation's shares ever split?

Cigna Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 5 June 2007. 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 Cigna Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cigna Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Cigna Corporation's share price.

Cigna Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cigna Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $189.8823 up to $271.71. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CI.US volatility(beta: 0.78)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 Cigna Corporation's is 0.7799. This would suggest that Cigna Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
