Is Ford under- or over-valued?

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

Ford's P/E ratio

Ford's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Ford shares trade at around 5x 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.

Ford's PEG ratio

Ford's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3475. 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 Ford's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ford's EBITDA

Ford's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $17.5 billion.

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

Ford'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 Ford.

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

Ford's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 29.02

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Ford's overall score of 29.02 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 56th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Ford's environmental score

Environmental score: 7.54/100

Ford's social score

Social score: 9.22/100

Ford's governance score

Governance score: 7.26/100

Ford's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Ford scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Ford hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Ford share dividends

25%

Dividend payout ratio: 24.59% of net profits

Recently Ford has paid out, on average, around 24.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ford shareholders could enjoy a 4.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ford's case, that would currently equate to about $0.3 per share.

While Ford's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ford is investing more in its future growth.

Ford's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ford's shares ever split?

Ford's shares were split on a 1748175:10 basis on 3 August 2000. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1748175 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ford shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ford shares which in turn could have impacted Ford's share price.

Ford share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ford's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.5052 up to $25.3151. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

F.US volatility(beta: 1.29)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 Ford's is 1.292. This would suggest that Ford's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
