Is NVIDIA Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing NVIDIA Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NVIDIA Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NVIDIA Corporation's P/E ratio
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 103x. In other words, NVIDIA Corporation shares trade at around 103x 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.
NVIDIA Corporation's PEG ratio
NVIDIA Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.0412. 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 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.
NVIDIA Corporation's EBITDA
NVIDIA Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $7.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a NVIDIA Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

NVIDIA Corporation's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like NVIDIA Corporation.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
NVIDIA Corporation's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 18.45
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and NVIDIA Corporation's overall score of 18.45 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 12nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like NVIDIA Corporation is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
NVIDIA Corporation's environmental score
Environmental score: 8.83/100
NVIDIA Corporation's environmental score of 8.83 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NVIDIA Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
NVIDIA Corporation's social score
Social score: 9.65/100
NVIDIA Corporation's social score of 9.65 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NVIDIA Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
NVIDIA Corporation's governance score
Governance score: 11.46/100
NVIDIA Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that NVIDIA Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
NVIDIA Corporation's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. NVIDIA Corporation scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that NVIDIA Corporation has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
NVIDIA Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 4.8% of net profits
Recently NVIDIA Corporation has paid out, on average, around 4.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NVIDIA Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.07% 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 NVIDIA Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
NVIDIA Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
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.
NVIDIA Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, NVIDIA Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $108.084 up to $289.1897. 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 1.7573. 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).
