Since the stock market crash in March caused by coronavirus, Cummins's stock price has had significant positive movement.

Its last market close was $219.54, which is 23.72% up on its pre-crash value of $167.46 and 117.31% up on the lowest point reached during the March crash when the stocks fell as low as $101.025.

Is Cummins under- or over-valued?

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

Cummins's P/E ratio

Cummins's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Cummins stocks trade at around 15x 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.

Cummins's PEG ratio

Cummins's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1553. 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 Cummins's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Cummins's EBITDA

Cummins's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$3.1 billion.

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

How to short and sell Cummins stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "CMI.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 3.1 million Cummins stocks held short by investors – that's known as Cummins's "short interest". This figure is 10.2% down from 3.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cummins stocks can be evaluated.

Cummins's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cummins's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cummins stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cummins stocks traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Cummins's SIR currently stands at 2.82. In other words for every 100,000 Cummins stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2820 stocks are currently held short.

However Cummins's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cummins stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Cummins stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cummins's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Cummins stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0219% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Cummins stocks, roughly 22 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 Cummins.

Cummins'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 Cummins.

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

Cummins's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 19.33

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Cummins's overall score of 19.33 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 16th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Cummins's environmental score

Environmental score: 5.72/100

Cummins's environmental score of 5.72 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Cummins is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Cummins's social score

Social score: 7.67/100

Cummins's social score of 7.67 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Cummins is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Cummins's governance score

Governance score: 6.45/100

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

Cummins's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

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

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Cummins Inc was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 19.33
Total ESG percentile 16.18
Environmental score 5.72

Cummins stock dividends

37%

Dividend payout ratio: 36.94% of net profits

Recently Cummins has paid out, on average, around 36.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cummins shareholders could enjoy a 2.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cummins's case, that would currently equate to about $5.361 per share.

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

Cummins's most recent dividend payout was on 2 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 19 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Cummins stocks ever split?

Cummins stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 January 2008. 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 Cummins stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Cummins stocks which in turn could have impacted Cummins's stock price.

Cummins stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cummins's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $195.1894 up to $273.9359. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CMI.US volatility(beta: 1.05)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 Cummins's is 1.0535. This would suggest that Cummins's stocks 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).
