Is Johnson & Johnson under- or over-valued?
Valuing Johnson & Johnson stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Johnson & Johnson's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Johnson & Johnson's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Johnson & Johnson'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 Johnson & Johnson.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Johnson & Johnson's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 35.8
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Johnson & Johnson's overall score of 35.8 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 72nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Johnson & Johnson 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.).
Johnson & Johnson's environmental score
Environmental score: 3.79/100
Johnson & Johnson's environmental score of 3.79 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Johnson & Johnson is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Johnson & Johnson's social score
Social score: 25.14/100
Johnson & Johnson's social score of 25.14 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Johnson & Johnson is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Johnson & Johnson's governance score
Governance score: 14.87/100
Johnson & Johnson's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Johnson & Johnson is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Johnson & Johnson's controversy score
Controversy score: 4/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Johnson & Johnson scored a 4 out of 5 for controversy – the second-lowest score possible, reflecting that Johnson & Johnson has a damaged public profile.
Johnson & Johnson share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 43.97% of net profits
Recently Johnson & Johnson has paid out, on average, around 43.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Johnson & Johnson shareholders could enjoy a 2.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Johnson & Johnson's case, that would currently equate to about $4.14 per share.
While Johnson & Johnson's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Johnson & Johnson may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Johnson & Johnson's most recent dividend payout was on 7 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Johnson & Johnson's shares ever split?
Johnson & Johnson's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 June 2001. 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 Johnson & Johnson shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Johnson & Johnson shares which in turn could have impacted Johnson & Johnson's share price.
Johnson & Johnson share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Johnson & Johnson's shares have ranged in value from as little as $148.6678 up to $177.7656. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
