Is Boston Scientific stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Boston Scientific's P/E ratio

Boston Scientific's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 65x. In other words, Boston Scientific shares trade at around 65x 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.

Boston Scientific's PEG ratio

Boston Scientific's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7987. 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 Boston Scientific's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Boston Scientific's EBITDA

Boston Scientific's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.7 billion.

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

Boston Scientific share dividends

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

Have Boston Scientific's shares ever split?

Boston Scientific's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 5 November 2003. 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 Boston Scientific shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Boston Scientific shares which in turn could have impacted Boston Scientific's share price.

Boston Scientific share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Boston Scientific's shares have ranged in value from as little as $48.35 up to $77.99. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BSX.US volatility(beta: 0.79)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 Boston Scientific's is 0.786. This would suggest that Boston Scientific's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
