Is Perrigo Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Perrigo Company's P/E ratio

Perrigo Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2748x. In other words, Perrigo Company shares trade at around 2748x 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.

Perrigo Company's PEG ratio

Perrigo Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9637. 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 Perrigo Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Perrigo Company's EBITDA

Perrigo Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $610 million.

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

Perrigo Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 45.37% of net profits

Recently Perrigo Company has paid out, on average, around 45.37% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Perrigo Company shareholders could enjoy a 4.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Perrigo Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.095 per share.

While Perrigo Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Perrigo Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Perrigo Company's most recent dividend payout was on 17 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Perrigo Company's shares ever split?

Perrigo Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 August 1993. 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 Perrigo Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Perrigo Company shares which in turn could have impacted Perrigo Company's share price.

Perrigo Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Perrigo Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.815 up to $38.8323. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PRGO.US volatility(beta: 0.51)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 Perrigo Company's is 0.511. This would suggest that Perrigo Company's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
