Is Thermo Fisher Scientific stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Thermo Fisher Scientific's P/E ratio

Thermo Fisher 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 35x. In other words, Thermo Fisher Scientific shares trade at around 35x 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.

Thermo Fisher Scientific's PEG ratio

Thermo Fisher Scientific's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8076. 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 Thermo Fisher 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.

Thermo Fisher Scientific's EBITDA

Thermo Fisher Scientific's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $10.8 billion.

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

Thermo Fisher Scientific share dividends

7%

Dividend payout ratio: 6.85% of net profits

Recently Thermo Fisher Scientific has paid out, on average, around 6.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.28% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Thermo Fisher Scientific shareholders could enjoy a 0.28% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Thermo Fisher Scientific's case, that would currently equate to about $1.44 per share.

While Thermo Fisher Scientific's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Thermo Fisher Scientific is investing more in its future growth.

Thermo Fisher Scientific's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 September 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Thermo Fisher Scientific's shares ever split?

Thermo Fisher Scientific's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 5 June 1996. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Thermo Fisher Scientific shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Thermo Fisher Scientific shares which in turn could have impacted Thermo Fisher Scientific's share price.

Thermo Fisher Scientific share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Thermo Fisher Scientific's shares have ranged in value from as little as $414.7638 up to $603.0121. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TMO.US volatility(beta: 0.77)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 Thermo Fisher Scientific's is 0.771. This would suggest that Thermo Fisher Scientific's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
