Is Hasbro under- or over-valued?
Valuing Hasbro stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hasbro's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hasbro's P/E ratio
Hasbro's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, Hasbro shares trade at around 30x 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.
Hasbro's PEG ratio
Hasbro's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7551. 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 Hasbro's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Hasbro's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$1.2 billion (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Hasbro's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||US$6.1 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||15.33%|
|Gross profit TTM||US$2.8 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||5.61%|
|Return on equity TTM||15.45%|
|Market capitalisation||US$13.6 billion|

Hasbro'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 Hasbro.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Hasbro's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 12.46
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Hasbro's overall score of 12.46 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Hasbro 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.).
Hasbro's environmental score
Environmental score: 2.02/100
Hasbro's environmental score of 2.02 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Hasbro is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Hasbro's social score
Social score: 9.21/100
Hasbro's social score of 9.21 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Hasbro is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Hasbro's governance score
Governance score: 6.74/100
Hasbro's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Hasbro is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Hasbro's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Hasbro scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Hasbro has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary
|Total ESG score||12.46|
|Total ESG percentile||4.62|
|Environmental score percentile||3|
|Social score percentile||3|
|Governance score percentile||3|
|Level of controversy||2|
Hasbro share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 51.52% of net profits
Recently Hasbro has paid out, on average, around 51.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hasbro shareholders could enjoy a 2.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hasbro's case, that would currently equate to about $2.72 per share.
Hasbro'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.
Hasbro's most recent dividend payout was on 14 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Hasbro's shares ever split?
Hasbro's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 March 1999. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hasbro shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hasbro shares which in turn could have impacted Hasbro's share price.
Hasbro share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Hasbro's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$85.1021 up to US$103.4467. 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 Hasbro's is 1.0275. This would suggest that Hasbro'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).
