Is Intel Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

P/E ratio

Intel 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 6x. In other words, Intel Corporation shares trade at around 6x 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.

However, Intel Corporation's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the semiconductors industry or those of similar companies.

PEG ratio

Intel Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1019. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Intel 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.

However, it's sensible to consider Intel Corporation's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

EBITDA

Intel Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $31.5 billion (£25.9 billion).

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

To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.

Forward annual dividend yield: 3.95% of stock value

Dividend payout ratio: 29.26% of net profits

Intel Corporation has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 3.95% of its share value annually.

Intel Corporation has paid out, on average, around 29.26% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 3.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Intel Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.407 per share.

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

Intel Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Intel Corporation's dividend yield is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
