Is Dell Technologies under- or over-valued?

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

Dell Technologies's P/E ratio

Dell Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Dell Technologies shares trade at around 7x 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.

Dell Technologies's PEG ratio

Dell Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0542. 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 Dell Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dell Technologies's EBITDA

Dell Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $9 billion.

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

Dell Technologies'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 Dell Technologies.

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

Dell Technologies's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 20.01

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Dell Technologies's overall score of 20.01 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 13rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Dell Technologies's environmental score

Environmental score: 4.6/100

Dell Technologies's environmental score of 4.6 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Dell Technologies is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Dell Technologies's social score

Social score: 9.27/100

Dell Technologies's social score of 9.27 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Dell Technologies is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Dell Technologies's governance score

Governance score: 11.13/100

Dell Technologies's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Dell Technologies is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Dell Technologies's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

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

Dell Technologies share dividends

8%

Dividend payout ratio: 8.08% of net profits

Recently Dell Technologies has paid out, on average, around 8.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dell Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 2.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dell Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.33 per share.

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

Dell Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Dell Technologies's shares ever split?

Dell Technologies's shares were split on a 1973:1000 basis on 2 November 2021. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1973 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dell Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 49.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dell Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Dell Technologies's share price.

Dell Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Dell Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.33 up to $61.54. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DELL.US volatility(beta: 0.94)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 Dell Technologies's is 0.9357. This would suggest that Dell Technologies's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
