Is Eastman Chemical Company under- or over-valued?

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

Eastman Chemical Company's P/E ratio

Eastman Chemical 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 32x. In other words, Eastman Chemical Company shares trade at around 32x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Eastman Chemical Company's PEG ratio

Eastman Chemical Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4126. 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 Eastman Chemical Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

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 Eastman Chemical Company.

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

Eastman Chemical Company's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 27.01

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Eastman Chemical Company's overall score of 27.01 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 38th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Eastman Chemical Company's environmental score

Environmental score: 10.68/100

Eastman Chemical Company's environmental score of 10.68 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Eastman Chemical Company is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Eastman Chemical Company's social score

Social score: 4.29/100

Eastman Chemical Company's social score of 4.29 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Eastman Chemical Company is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Governance score: 7.55/100

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

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

Eastman Chemical Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 32.38% of net profits

Recently Eastman Chemical Company has paid out, on average, around 32.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eastman Chemical Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eastman Chemical Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.76 per share.

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

Eastman Chemical Company's most recent dividend payout was on 7 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Eastman Chemical Company's shares ever split?

Eastman Chemical Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 October 2011. 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 Eastman Chemical Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eastman Chemical Company shares which in turn could have impacted Eastman Chemical Company's share price.

Eastman Chemical Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Eastman Chemical Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $93.9582 up to $129.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EMN.US volatility(beta: 1.56)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 Eastman Chemical Company's is 1.5585. This would suggest that Eastman Chemical Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
