Is Raytheon Technologies 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

Raytheon Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 57x. In other words, Raytheon Technologies shares trade at around 57x 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.

PEG ratio

Raytheon Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6968. A PEG ratio below 1 can be interpreted as meaning the shares are not overvalued 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 Raytheon Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

EBITDA

Raytheon Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $9.2 billion (£6.7 billion).

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

There are currently 15.2 million Raytheon Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 8.9% up from 14.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Raytheon Technologies shares can be evaluated.

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Raytheon Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Raytheon Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Raytheon Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 3.8 million). Raytheon Technologies's SIR currently stands at 4.03. In other words for every 100,000 Raytheon Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4030 shares are currently held short.

However Raytheon Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Raytheon Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Raytheon Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Raytheon Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Raytheon Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0112% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Raytheon Technologies shares, roughly 11 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 Raytheon Technologies.

Raytheon Technologies share dividends

2.3%

Dividend yield: 2.3% of stock value

2.4%

Forward annual dividend yield: 2.43% of stock value

60.6%

Dividend payout ratio: 60.62% of net profits

Raytheon Technologies has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 2.30% of its share value annually.

Raytheon Technologies has paid out, on average, around 60.62% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.43% 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 2.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Raytheon Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $1.935 per share.

Raytheon Technologies's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Raytheon Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Raytheon Technologies's shares ever split?

Raytheon Technologies's shares were split on a 15890:1000 basis on 3 April 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 15890 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Raytheon Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 93.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Raytheon Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Raytheon Technologies's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Raytheon Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $50.6309 up to $89.4432. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RTX.US volatility(beta: 1.05)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 Raytheon Technologies's is 1.0519. This would suggest that Raytheon Technologies's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
