Is ResMed under- or over-valued?
Valuing ResMed stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ResMed's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ResMed's P/E ratio
ResMed's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 79x. In other words, ResMed shares trade at around 79x 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.
ResMed's PEG ratio
ResMed's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.509. 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 ResMed's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ResMed's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ResMed's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$3.2 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||28.7%|
|Gross profit TTM||$1.9 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||12.31%|

Shorting ResMed shares
There are currently 979,769 ResMed shares held short by investors – that's known as ResMed's "short interest". This figure is 10.3% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ResMed shares can be evaluated.
ResMed's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
ResMed's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ResMed shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ResMed shares traded daily (recently around 507652.33160622). ResMed's SIR currently stands at 1.93. In other words for every 100,000 ResMed shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1930 shares are currently held short.
However ResMed's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ResMed shares, or, against the total number of tradable ResMed shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ResMed's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ResMed shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0068% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ResMed shares, roughly 7 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against ResMed.
ResMed'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 ResMed.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
ResMed's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 29.05
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and ResMed's overall score of 29.05 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 50th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like ResMed 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.).
ResMed's environmental score
Environmental score: 7.42/100
ResMed's environmental score of 7.42 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ResMed is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
ResMed's social score
Social score: 14/100
ResMed's social score of 14 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ResMed is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
ResMed's governance score
Governance score: 12.64/100
ResMed's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that ResMed is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
ResMed's controversy score
Controversy score: 1/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. ResMed scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that ResMed has managed to keep its nose clean.
ResMed share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 29.83% of net profits
Recently ResMed has paid out, on average, around 29.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ResMed shareholders could enjoy a 0.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ResMed's case, that would currently equate to about $1.59 per share.
While ResMed's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ResMed may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
ResMed's most recent dividend payout was on 23 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have ResMed's shares ever split?
ResMed's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 August 2010. 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 ResMed shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ResMed shares which in turn could have impacted ResMed's share price.
ResMed share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, ResMed's shares have ranged in value from as little as $176.4158 up to $301.34. 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 ResMed's is 0.345. This would suggest that ResMed's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
