Is Ford Motor under- or over-valued?

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

Ford Motor's P/E ratio

Ford Motor's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Ford Motor shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Ford Motor's PEG ratio

Ford Motor's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1796. 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 Ford Motor's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ford Motor's EBITDA

Ford Motor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $9 billion.

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

Ford Motor'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 Ford Motor.

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

Ford Motor's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 29.02

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Ford Motor's overall score of 29.02 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 56th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Ford Motor's environmental score

Environmental score: 7.54/100

Ford Motor's social score

Social score: 9.22/100

Ford Motor's governance score

Governance score: 7.26/100

Ford Motor's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

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

Ford Motor share dividends

5%

Dividend payout ratio: 5.35% of net profits

Recently Ford Motor has paid out, on average, around 5.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ford Motor shareholders could enjoy a 2.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ford Motor's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

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

Ford Motor's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ford Motor's shares ever split?

Ford Motor's shares were split on a 1748175:10 basis on 3 August 2000. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1748175 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ford Motor shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ford Motor shares which in turn could have impacted Ford Motor's share price.

Ford Motor share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ford Motor's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.3878 up to $20.79. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

F.US volatility(beta: 1.11)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 Ford Motor's is 1.1117. This would suggest that Ford Motor's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
