Is Unilever PLC ADR stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Unilever PLC ADR stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Unilever PLC ADR's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Unilever PLC ADR's P/E ratio
Unilever PLC ADR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Unilever PLC ADR shares trade at around 16x 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.
Unilever PLC ADR's PEG ratio
Unilever PLC ADR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5598. 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 Unilever PLC ADR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Unilever PLC ADR share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 69.91% of net profits
Recently Unilever PLC ADR has paid out, on average, around 69.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Unilever PLC ADR shareholders could enjoy a 3.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Unilever PLC ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $1.664 per share.
Unilever PLC ADR'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.
Unilever PLC ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Unilever PLC ADR's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Unilever PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 44.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Unilever PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted Unilever PLC ADR's share price.
Unilever PLC ADR share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Unilever PLC ADR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.3326 up to $55.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
