Is Intuitive Surgical stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Intuitive Surgical stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Intuitive Surgical's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Intuitive Surgical's P/E ratio
Intuitive Surgical's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 83x. In other words, Intuitive Surgical shares trade at around 83x 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.
Intuitive Surgical's PEG ratio
Intuitive Surgical's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.2734. 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 Intuitive Surgical's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Intuitive Surgical's overall score of 31.63 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 60th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Intuitive Surgical 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.).
Intuitive Surgical's environmental score
Environmental score: 4.47/100
Intuitive Surgical's environmental score of 4.47 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Intuitive Surgical is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Intuitive Surgical share dividends
We're not expecting Intuitive Surgical to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Intuitive Surgical's shares ever split?
Intuitive Surgical's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 5 October 2021. 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 Intuitive Surgical shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Intuitive Surgical shares which in turn could have impacted Intuitive Surgical's share price.
Intuitive Surgical share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Intuitive Surgical's shares have ranged in value from as little as $180.07 up to $317.81. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Intuitive Surgical's is 1.3118. This would suggest that Intuitive Surgical's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
