Is Tesla stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Tesla's P/E ratio

Tesla's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 100x. In other words, Tesla shares trade at around 100x 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.

Tesla's PEG ratio

Tesla's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6574. 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 Tesla's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Tesla's EBITDA

Tesla's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $12.7 billion.

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

Tesla'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 Tesla.

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

Tesla's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 27.59

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Tesla's overall score of 27.59 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 61st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Tesla's environmental score

Environmental score: 1.25/100

Tesla's environmental score of 1.25 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Tesla is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Tesla's social score

Social score: 17.81/100

Tesla's social score of 17.81 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Tesla is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Tesla's governance score

Governance score: 10.53/100

Tesla's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Tesla is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Tesla's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Tesla scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Tesla hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Tesla Inc was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 27.59
Total ESG percentile 60.92
Environmental score 1.25
Environmental score percentile 1
Social score 17.81

Tesla share dividends

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

Have Tesla's shares ever split?

Tesla's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 30 August 2020. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Tesla shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tesla shares which in turn could have impacted Tesla's share price.

Tesla share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tesla's shares have ranged in value from as little as $620.46 up to $1243.49. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TSLA.US volatility(beta: 2.13)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 Tesla's is 2.132. This would suggest that Tesla's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
