Is FedEx Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing FedEx Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of FedEx Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
FedEx Corporation's P/E ratio
FedEx 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 14x. In other words, FedEx Corporation stocks trade at around 14x 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.
FedEx Corporation's PEG ratio
FedEx Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2013. 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 FedEx Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.
FedEx Corporation's EBITDA
FedEx Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$11.7 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a FedEx Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.9 million FedEx Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as FedEx Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.8% down from 3.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting FedEx Corporation stocks can be evaluated.
FedEx Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
FedEx Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FedEx Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FedEx Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 2.7 million). FedEx Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.08. In other words for every 100,000 FedEx Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1080 stocks are currently held short.
However FedEx Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FedEx Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable FedEx Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FedEx Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 FedEx Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0116% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable FedEx Corporation stocks, roughly 12 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 FedEx Corporation.

FedEx 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 FedEx Corporation.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
FedEx Corporation's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 19.26
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and FedEx Corporation's overall score of 19.26 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 25th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like FedEx 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.).
FedEx Corporation's environmental score
Environmental score: 3.75/100
FedEx Corporation's environmental score of 3.75 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that FedEx Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
FedEx Corporation's social score
Social score: 10.02/100
FedEx Corporation's social score of 10.02 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that FedEx Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. FedEx Corporation scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that FedEx Corporation hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

FedEx Corporation stock dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 14.85% of net profits
Recently FedEx Corporation has paid out, on average, around 14.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FedEx Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FedEx Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.7 per share.
While FedEx Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that FedEx Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
FedEx Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 11 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 24 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have FedEx Corporation stocks ever split?
FedEx Corporation stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 6 May 1999. 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 FedEx Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for FedEx Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted FedEx Corporation's stock price.
FedEx Corporation stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, FedEx Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $166.8254 up to $319.11. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while FedEx Corporation's is 1.2481. This would suggest that FedEx Corporation'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).
