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.

Procter-and-Gamble Company's P/E ratio

Procter-and-Gamble Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, Procter-and-Gamble Company shares trade at around 23x 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.

Procter-and-Gamble Company's PEG ratio

Procter-and-Gamble Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.0044. 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 Procter-and-Gamble Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Procter-and-Gamble Company's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 25.68

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Procter-and-Gamble Company's overall score of 25.68 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 40th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Procter-and-Gamble Company 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.).

Procter-and-Gamble Company's environmental score

Procter-and-Gamble Company's environmental score of 12.71 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Procter-and-Gamble Company is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Procter-and-Gamble Company's social score

Social score: 10.97/100

Procter-and-Gamble Company's social score of 10.97 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Procter-and-Gamble Company is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Procter-and-Gamble Company scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Procter-and-Gamble Company hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Procter-and-Gamble Company share dividends

61%

Dividend payout ratio: 61.38% of net profits

Recently Procter-and-Gamble Company has paid out, on average, around 61.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.69% of the current stock value. 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.

Procter-and-Gamble Company'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.

Procter-and-Gamble Company's most recent dividend payout was on 15 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Procter-and-Gamble Company's shares ever split?

Procter-and-Gamble Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 June 2004. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. 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.

Over the last 12 months, Procter-and-Gamble Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $128.6644 up to $163.836. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
