Is Trimble under- or over-valued?

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

Trimble's P/E ratio

Trimble's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Trimble shares trade at around 32x 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.

Trimble's PEG ratio

Trimble's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2173. 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 Trimble's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Trimble's EBITDA

Trimble's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $773.2 million.

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

Trimble'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 Trimble.

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

Trimble's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 17.39

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Trimble's overall score of 17.39 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 12nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Trimble's environmental score

Environmental score: 10.74/100

Trimble's environmental score of 10.74 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Trimble is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Trimble's social score

Social score: 11.82/100

Trimble's social score of 11.82 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Trimble is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Trimble's governance score

Governance score: 13.32/100

Trimble's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Trimble is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Trimble's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Trimble scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that Trimble has managed to keep its nose clean.

Trimble share dividends

We're not expecting Trimble to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Trimble's shares ever split?

Trimble's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 March 2013. 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 Trimble shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Trimble shares which in turn could have impacted Trimble's share price.

Trimble share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Trimble's shares have ranged in value from as little as $59.89 up to $96.49. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TRMB.US volatility(beta: 1.58)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 Trimble's is 1.5804. This would suggest that Trimble's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
