Is Trimble under- or over-valued?
Valuing Trimble stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Trimble's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Trimble's P/E ratio
Trimble's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, Trimble shares trade at around 35x 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.
Trimble's PEG ratio
Trimble's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.9382. 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 Trimble's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Trimble's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$772.3 million (£0.0 million).

Trimble share dividends
We're not expecting Trimble to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Trimble's shares ever split?
Trimble's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 March 2013. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Trimble shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Trimble shares which in turn could have impacted Trimble's share price.
Trimble share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Trimble's is 1.5352. This would suggest that Trimble's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
