Is Fiserv under- or over-valued?

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

Fiserv's P/E ratio

Fiserv's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 57x. In other words, Fiserv shares trade at around 57x 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.

Fiserv's PEG ratio

Fiserv's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0019. 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 Fiserv's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Fiserv's EBITDA

Fiserv's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $5.6 billion.

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

Fiserv'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 Fiserv.

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

Fiserv's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 20.03

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Fiserv's overall score of 20.03 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 19th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Fiserv's environmental score

Environmental score: 0.35/100

Fiserv's environmental score of 0.35 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Fiserv is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Fiserv's social score

Social score: 13.6/100

Fiserv's social score of 13.6 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Fiserv is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Fiserv's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Fiserv is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Fiserv's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

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

Fiserv share dividends

We're not expecting Fiserv to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Fiserv's shares ever split?

Fiserv's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 March 2018. 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 Fiserv shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fiserv shares which in turn could have impacted Fiserv's share price.

Fiserv share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Fiserv's shares have ranged in value from as little as $92.06 up to $127.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FISV.US volatility(beta: 0.84)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 Fiserv's is 0.8353. This would suggest that Fiserv's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
