Is Flowserve Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Flowserve Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Flowserve Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Flowserve Corporation's P/E ratio
Flowserve 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 19x. In other words, Flowserve Corporation shares trade at around 19x 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.
Flowserve Corporation's PEG ratio
Flowserve Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7237. 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 Flowserve Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Flowserve Corporation's EBITDA
Flowserve Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $375.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Flowserve Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Flowserve 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 Flowserve Corporation.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Flowserve Corporation's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 40.61
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Flowserve Corporation's overall score of 40.61 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 83rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Flowserve 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.).
Flowserve Corporation's environmental score
Environmental score: 11.6/100
Flowserve Corporation's environmental score of 11.6 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Flowserve Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Flowserve Corporation's social score
Social score: 21.51/100
Flowserve Corporation's social score of 21.51 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Flowserve Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Flowserve Corporation's governance score
Governance score: 8/100
Flowserve Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Flowserve Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Flowserve Corporation's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Flowserve Corporation scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Flowserve Corporation has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Flowserve Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 56.34% of net profits
Recently Flowserve Corporation has paid out, on average, around 56.34% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Flowserve Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Flowserve Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
Flowserve Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Flowserve Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Flowserve Corporation's shares ever split?
Flowserve Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 24 June 2013. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Flowserve Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Flowserve Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Flowserve Corporation's share price.
Flowserve Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Flowserve Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.5793 up to $38.86. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Flowserve Corporation's is 1.6253. This would suggest that Flowserve Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
