Is Colgate-Palmolive Company under- or over-valued?

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

Colgate-Palmolive Company's P/E ratio

Colgate-Palmolive Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks trade at around 24x 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 stocks or simply that they're under-valued.

Colgate-Palmolive Company's PEG ratio

Colgate-Palmolive Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.7428. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Colgate-Palmolive Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Colgate-Palmolive Company's EBITDA

Colgate-Palmolive Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$4.4 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Colgate-Palmolive Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "CL.US"

There are currently 8.5 million Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks held short by investors – that's known as Colgate-Palmolive Company's "short interest". This figure is 6.5% down from 9.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks can be evaluated.

Colgate-Palmolive Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Colgate-Palmolive Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks traded daily (recently around 3.5 million). Colgate-Palmolive Company's SIR currently stands at 2.43. In other words for every 100,000 Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2430 stocks are currently held short.

However Colgate-Palmolive Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Colgate-Palmolive Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0107% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks, roughly 11 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Colgate-Palmolive Company.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Colgate-Palmolive Company 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.).

Colgate-Palmolive Company's environmental score

Environmental score: 10.29/100

Colgate-Palmolive Company's environmental score of 10.29 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Colgate-Palmolive Company is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Colgate-Palmolive Company stock dividends

56%

Dividend payout ratio: 56.33% of net profits

Recently Colgate-Palmolive Company has paid out, on average, around 56.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Colgate-Palmolive Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Colgate-Palmolive Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.77 per share.

Colgate-Palmolive Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Colgate-Palmolive Company's most recent dividend payout was on 15 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 20 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks ever split?

Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 May 2013. 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 Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Colgate-Palmolive Company stocks which in turn could have impacted Colgate-Palmolive Company's stock price.

Colgate-Palmolive Company stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Colgate-Palmolive Company's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $72.7281 up to $84.9914. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CL.US volatility(beta: 0.59)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Colgate-Palmolive Company's is 0.5912. This would suggest that Colgate-Palmolive Company's stocks are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
