Is CSX Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

CSX Corporation's P/E ratio

CSX 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 23x. In other words, CSX Corporation shares trade at around 23x 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.

CSX Corporation's PEG ratio

CSX Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7112. 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 CSX 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.

CSX Corporation's EBITDA

CSX Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.5 billion.

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

CSX 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 CSX Corporation.

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

CSX Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 21.09

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and CSX Corporation's overall score of 21.09 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 30th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

CSX Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 5.48/100

CSX Corporation's environmental score of 5.48 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that CSX Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

CSX Corporation's social score

Social score: 11.87/100

CSX Corporation's social score of 11.87 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that CSX Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

CSX Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 4.74/100

CSX Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that CSX Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

CSX Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

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

CSX Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 25.39% of net profits

Recently CSX Corporation has paid out, on average, around 25.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CSX Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CSX Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.365 per share.

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

CSX 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 29 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CSX Corporation's shares ever split?

CSX Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 29 June 2021. 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 CSX Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CSX Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted CSX Corporation's share price.

CSX Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CSX Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.3944 up to $38.01. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CSX.US volatility(beta: 1.22)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while CSX Corporation's is 1.2164. This would suggest that CSX Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
