Is Nokia under- or over-valued?

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

Nokia's PEG ratio

Nokia's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7001. 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 Nokia's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Nokia's EBITDA

Nokia's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is €3.3 billion.

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

Nokia'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 Nokia.

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

Nokia's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 10.79

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Nokia's overall score of 10.79 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Nokia's environmental score

Environmental score: 1.22/100

Nokia's environmental score of 1.22 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nokia is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Nokia's social score

Social score: 7.74/100

Nokia's social score of 7.74 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nokia is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Nokia's governance score

Governance score: 3.76/100

Nokia's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Nokia is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Nokia's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Nokia scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Nokia has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Nokia share dividends

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

Have Nokia's shares ever split?

Nokia's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 9 April 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Nokia shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nokia shares which in turn could have impacted Nokia's share price.

Nokia share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nokia's shares have ranged in value from as little as €2.701 up to €5.368. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NOKIA.HE volatility(beta: 0.59)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (HE average) beta is 1, while Nokia's is 0.5898. This would suggest that Nokia's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
