Is Tetra Tech stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Tetra Tech stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Tetra Tech's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Tetra Tech's P/E ratio
Tetra Tech's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Tetra Tech shares trade at around 25x 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.
Tetra Tech's PEG ratio
Tetra Tech's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.231. 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 Tetra Tech's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Tetra Tech's EBITDA
Tetra Tech's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $378 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Tetra Tech's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Tetra Tech share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 19.74% of net profits
Recently Tetra Tech has paid out, on average, around 19.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tetra Tech shareholders could enjoy a 0.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tetra Tech's case, that would currently equate to about $0.89 per share.
While Tetra Tech's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Tetra Tech is investing more in its future growth.
Tetra Tech's most recent dividend payout was on 24 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Tetra Tech's shares ever split?
Tetra Tech's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 18 December 2001. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tetra Tech shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tetra Tech shares which in turn could have impacted Tetra Tech's share price.
Tetra Tech share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Tetra Tech's shares have ranged in value from as little as $118.0036 up to $169.1538. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Tetra Tech's is 0.9625. This would suggest that Tetra Tech's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
