Is Xerox Holdings Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Xerox Holdings Corporation's P/E ratio

Xerox Holdings Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Xerox Holdings Corporation shares trade at around 15x 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.

Xerox Holdings Corporation's PEG ratio

Xerox Holdings Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3666. 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 Xerox Holdings Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Xerox Holdings Corporation's EBITDA

Xerox Holdings Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $834 million.

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

Shorting Xerox Holdings Corporation shares

There are currently 6.7 million Xerox Holdings Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Xerox Holdings Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% down from 6.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Xerox Holdings Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Xerox Holdings Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Xerox Holdings Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Xerox Holdings Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Xerox Holdings Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Xerox Holdings Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.89. In other words for every 100,000 Xerox Holdings Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3890 shares are currently held short.

However Xerox Holdings Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Xerox Holdings Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Xerox Holdings Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Xerox Holdings Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Xerox Holdings Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.049% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Xerox Holdings Corporation shares, roughly 49 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Xerox Holdings Corporation.

Xerox Holdings Corporation'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 Xerox Holdings Corporation.

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

Xerox Holdings Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 72.96

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Xerox Holdings Corporation's overall score of 72.96 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 98th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Xerox Holdings Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 89/100

Xerox Holdings Corporation's environmental score of 89 puts it squarely in the 103rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Xerox Holdings Corporation is a laggard in its sector in terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a greater level of risk.

Xerox Holdings Corporation's social score

Social score: 62.5/100

Xerox Holdings Corporation's social score of 62.5 puts it squarely in the 90th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Xerox Holdings Corporation is a laggard in its sector in terms of its social impact.

Xerox Holdings Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 70.95/100

Xerox Holdings Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 82nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Xerox Holdings Corporation is a laggard in its sector in terms of responsible leadership, and exposed to a greater level of risk.

Xerox Holdings Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

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

Xerox Holdings Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 57.14% of net profits

Recently Xerox Holdings Corporation has paid out, on average, around 57.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Xerox Holdings Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 4.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Xerox Holdings Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.

Xerox Holdings Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Xerox Holdings Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Xerox Holdings Corporation's shares ever split?

Xerox Holdings Corporation's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 14 June 2017. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Xerox Holdings Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Xerox Holdings Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Xerox Holdings Corporation's share price.

Xerox Holdings Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Xerox Holdings Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.515 up to $26.4022. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

XRX.US volatility(beta: 1.78)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 Xerox Holdings Corporation's is 1.7833. This would suggest that Xerox Holdings Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
