Is Nutrien under- or over-valued?
Valuing Nutrien stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nutrien's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nutrien's P/E ratio
Nutrien's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Nutrien shares trade at around 7x 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.
Nutrien's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $11 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Nutrien's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Nutrien'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 Nutrien.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Nutrien's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 38.23
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Nutrien's overall score of 38.23 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 78th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Nutrien 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.).
Nutrien's environmental score
Environmental score: 20.13/100
Nutrien's environmental score of 20.13 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nutrien is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Nutrien's social score
Social score: 11.58/100
Nutrien's social score of 11.58 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nutrien is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Nutrien's governance score
Governance score: 10.01/100
Nutrien's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Nutrien is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Nutrien's controversy score
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Nutrien scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Nutrien hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
Nutrien share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 15.32% of net profits
Recently Nutrien has paid out, on average, around 15.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nutrien shareholders could enjoy a 2.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nutrien's case, that would currently equate to about $1.88 per share.
While Nutrien's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Nutrien is investing more in its future growth.
Nutrien's most recent dividend payout was on 13 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Nutrien's shares ever split?
Nutrien's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 24 February 2011. 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 Nutrien shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nutrien shares which in turn could have impacted Nutrien's share price.
Nutrien share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Nutrien's shares have ranged in value from as little as $64.4052 up to $115.942. 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 Nutrien's is 0.8939. This would suggest that Nutrien's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
