Is Corteva under- or over-valued?

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

Corteva's P/E ratio

Corteva's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Corteva shares trade at around 22x 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.

Corteva's PEG ratio

Corteva's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0705. 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 Corteva's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Corteva's EBITDA

Corteva's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$2.2 billion (£1.6 billion).

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

Corteva share dividends

26%

Dividend payout ratio: 25.84% of net profits

Recently Corteva has paid out, on average, around 25.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Corteva shareholders could enjoy a 1.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Corteva's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.

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

Corteva's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
