Is Hewlett Packard Enterprise stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Hewlett Packard Enterprise stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hewlett Packard Enterprise's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's P/E ratio
Hewlett Packard Enterprise'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, Hewlett Packard Enterprise 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.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's PEG ratio
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8441. 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 Hewlett Packard Enterprise's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's EBITDA
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.9 billion.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise'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 Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 23.34
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise's overall score of 23.34 (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 Hewlett Packard Enterprise 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.).
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's environmental score
Environmental score: 4.19/100
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's environmental score of 4.19 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Hewlett Packard Enterprise is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's social score
Social score: 16.43/100
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's social score of 16.43 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Hewlett Packard Enterprise is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's governance score
Governance score: 13.72/100
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Hewlett Packard Enterprise is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Hewlett Packard Enterprise scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Hewlett Packard Enterprise has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 22.64% of net profits
Recently Hewlett Packard Enterprise has paid out, on average, around 22.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hewlett Packard Enterprise shareholders could enjoy a 3.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hewlett Packard Enterprise's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.
While Hewlett Packard Enterprise's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Hewlett Packard Enterprise is investing more in its future growth.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's most recent dividend payout was on 14 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Hewlett Packard Enterprise's shares ever split?
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's shares were split on a 1289:1000 basis on 1 September 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1289 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hewlett Packard Enterprise shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 22.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hewlett Packard Enterprise shares which in turn could have impacted Hewlett Packard Enterprise's share price.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Hewlett Packard Enterprise's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.7108 up to $17.1012. 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 Hewlett Packard Enterprise's is 1.24. This would suggest that Hewlett Packard Enterprise's shares 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).
