Is NVIDIA 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.
NVIDIA 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 78x. In other words, NVIDIA Corporation shares trade at around 78x 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.
However, NVIDIA Corporation's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the semiconductors industry or those of similar companies.
NVIDIA Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.1088. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into NVIDIA 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 NVIDIA Corporation's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.
NVIDIA Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $8.5 billion (£6.2 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a NVIDIA 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.
|Revenue TTM||$21.9 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||33.49%|
|Gross profit TTM||$10.6 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||14.36%|

|Market capitalisation||$544.8 billion|

There are currently 22.4 million NVIDIA Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 1.2% down from 22.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NVIDIA Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Short interest ratio (SIR)
NVIDIA Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NVIDIA Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NVIDIA Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 24.1 million). NVIDIA Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.93. In other words for every 100,000 NVIDIA Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 930 shares are currently held short.
To gain some more context, you can compare NVIDIA Corporation's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.
However NVIDIA Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NVIDIA Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable NVIDIA Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NVIDIA Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NVIDIA Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0093% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NVIDIA Corporation shares, roughly 9 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against NVIDIA Corporation.

NVIDIA Corporation share dividends
Dividend yield: 0.07% of stock value
Forward annual dividend yield: 0.08% of stock value
Dividend payout ratio: 4.63% of net profits
NVIDIA Corporation has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 0.07% of its share value annually.
NVIDIA Corporation has paid out, on average, around 4.63% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.08% 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 0.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NVIDIA Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.16 per share.
While NVIDIA Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that the company is investing more in its future growth.
NVIDIA Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 23 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
NVIDIA Corporation's dividend yield is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
- Intel Corporation (INTC.US): 2.51% (2.58% forward annual dividend yield)
- Broadcom (AVGO.US): 2.89% (2.89% forward annual dividend yield)
- Advanced Micro Devices (AMD.US): 0.00% (does not pay dividend)
Have NVIDIA Corporation's shares ever split?
NVIDIA Corporation's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 20 July 2021. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NVIDIA Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NVIDIA Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted NVIDIA Corporation's share price.
Share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, NVIDIA Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $115.5782 up to $230.3894. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while NVIDIA Corporation's is 1.3937. This would suggest that NVIDIA Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
To put NVIDIA Corporation's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
- Intel Corporation (INTC.US): 0.5921
- Broadcom (AVGO.US): 0.945
- Advanced Micro Devices (AMD.US): 1.9979
