Is Procter-and-Gamble Company under- or over-valued?
Valuing Procter-and-Gamble Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Procter-and-Gamble Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Procter-and-Gamble Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Procter-and-Gamble Company's case, that would currently equate to about $3.523 per share.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Procter-and-Gamble Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Procter-and-Gamble Company shares which in turn could have impacted Procter-and-Gamble Company's share price.
