Is Juniper Networks 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.
Juniper Networks's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 72x. In other words, Juniper Networks shares trade at around 72x 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.
Juniper Networks's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3121. 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 Juniper Networks's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Juniper Networks's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $680.3 million (£0.0 million).

Juniper Networks share dividends
Dividend yield: 2.47% of stock value
Forward annual dividend yield: 2.48% of stock value
Dividend payout ratio: 45.98% of net profits
Juniper Networks has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 2.47% of its share value annually.
Juniper Networks has paid out, on average, around 45.98% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.48% 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 2.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Juniper Networks's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
While Juniper Networks'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.
Juniper Networks's most recent dividend payout was on 22 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Juniper Networks's shares ever split?
Juniper Networks's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 June 2000. 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 Juniper Networks shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Juniper Networks shares which in turn could have impacted Juniper Networks's share price.
Share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Juniper Networks's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.8345 up to $32.53. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Juniper Networks's is 0.8831. This would suggest that Juniper Networks's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
