Is Tyson Foods under- or over-valued?

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

Tyson Foods's P/E ratio

Tyson Foods's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Tyson Foods shares trade at around 8x 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.

Tyson Foods's PEG ratio

Tyson Foods's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4482. 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 Tyson Foods's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Tyson Foods's EBITDA

Tyson Foods's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $5.6 billion.

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

Tyson Foods'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 Tyson Foods.

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

Tyson Foods's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 47.69

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Tyson Foods's overall score of 47.69 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 97th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Tyson Foods's environmental score

Environmental score: 21.8/100

Tyson Foods's environmental score of 21.8 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Tyson Foods is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Tyson Foods's social score

Social score: 18.79/100

Tyson Foods's social score of 18.79 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Tyson Foods is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Tyson Foods's governance score

Governance score: 18.6/100

Tyson Foods's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Tyson Foods is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Tyson Foods's controversy score

Controversy score: 4/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Tyson Foods scored a 4 out of 5 for controversy – the second-lowest score possible, reflecting that Tyson Foods has a damaged public profile.

Tyson Foods share dividends

21%

Dividend payout ratio: 21.08% of net profits

Recently Tyson Foods has paid out, on average, around 21.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tyson Foods shareholders could enjoy a 2.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tyson Foods's case, that would currently equate to about $1.84 per share.

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

Tyson Foods's most recent dividend payout was on 14 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Tyson Foods's shares ever split?

Tyson Foods's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 17 February 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tyson Foods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tyson Foods shares which in turn could have impacted Tyson Foods's share price.

Tyson Foods share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tyson Foods's shares have ranged in value from as little as $62.94 up to $99.1116. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TSN.US volatility(beta: 0.72)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Tyson Foods's is 0.7174. This would suggest that Tyson Foods's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
