Is Teradyne under- or over-valued?

Valuing Teradyne stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Teradyne's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Teradyne's P/E ratio

Teradyne's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Teradyne shares trade at around 19x 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.

Teradyne's PEG ratio

Teradyne's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0883. 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 Teradyne's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Teradyne's EBITDA

Teradyne's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.3 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Teradyne's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Teradyne'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 Teradyne.

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

Teradyne's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 24.17

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Teradyne's overall score of 24.17 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 28th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Teradyne 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.).

Teradyne's environmental score

Environmental score: 11.2/100

Teradyne's environmental score of 11.2 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Teradyne is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Teradyne's social score

Social score: 10.6/100

Teradyne's social score of 10.6 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Teradyne is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Teradyne's governance score

Governance score: 10.36/100

Teradyne's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Teradyne is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Teradyne share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 7.18% of net profits

Recently Teradyne has paid out, on average, around 7.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Teradyne shareholders could enjoy a 0.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Teradyne's case, that would currently equate to about $0.41 per share.

While Teradyne's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Teradyne is investing more in its future growth.

Teradyne's most recent dividend payout was on 17 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Teradyne's shares ever split?

Teradyne's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 September 1999. 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 Teradyne shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Teradyne shares which in turn could have impacted Teradyne's share price.

Teradyne share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Teradyne's shares have ranged in value from as little as $98.64 up to $168.754. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TER.US volatility(beta: 1.5)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Teradyne's is 1.4995. This would suggest that Teradyne's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
