Is Kraft Heinz stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Kraft Heinz stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kraft Heinz's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kraft Heinz's P/E ratio
Kraft Heinz's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Kraft Heinz shares trade at around 20x 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.
Kraft Heinz's PEG ratio
Kraft Heinz's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8861. 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 Kraft Heinz's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Kraft Heinz's EBITDA
Kraft Heinz's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6 billion.

Kraft Heinz'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 Kraft Heinz.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Kraft Heinz's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 37.95
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Kraft Heinz's overall score of 37.95 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 74th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Kraft Heinz 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.).
Kraft Heinz's environmental score
Environmental score: 17.8/100
Kraft Heinz's environmental score of 17.8 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Kraft Heinz is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Kraft Heinz's social score
Social score: 20.22/100
Kraft Heinz's social score of 20.22 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Kraft Heinz is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Kraft Heinz's governance score
Governance score: 12.43/100
Kraft Heinz's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Kraft Heinz is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Kraft Heinz's controversy score
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Kraft Heinz scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Kraft Heinz hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
Kraft Heinz share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 55.94% of net profits
Recently Kraft Heinz has paid out, on average, around 55.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kraft Heinz shareholders could enjoy a 4.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kraft Heinz's case, that would currently equate to about $1.6 per share.
Kraft Heinz'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.
Kraft Heinz's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Kraft Heinz share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Kraft Heinz's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.0558 up to $42.3532. 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 Kraft Heinz's is 0.6879. This would suggest that Kraft Heinz's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
