Is FMC Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

FMC Corporation's P/E ratio

FMC 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 24x. In other words, FMC Corporation shares trade at around 24x 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.

FMC Corporation's PEG ratio

FMC Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3904. 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 FMC 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.

FMC Corporation's EBITDA

FMC Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.2 billion.

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

FMC 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 FMC Corporation.

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

FMC Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 38.92

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and FMC Corporation's overall score of 38.92 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 82nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

FMC Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 16.83/100

FMC Corporation's social score

Social score: 11.54/100

FMC Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 5.55/100

FMC Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

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

FMC Corporation share dividends

32%

Dividend payout ratio: 31.83% of net profits

Recently FMC Corporation has paid out, on average, around 31.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FMC Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FMC Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.92 per share.

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

FMC Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 20 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have FMC Corporation's shares ever split?

FMC Corporation's shares were split on a 1153:1000 basis on 4 March 2019. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1153 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your FMC Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 13.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for FMC Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted FMC Corporation's share price.

FMC Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, FMC Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $86.4033 up to $120.7546. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FMC.US volatility(beta: 0.88)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 FMC Corporation's is 0.8773. This would suggest that FMC Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
