Valuing Tyson Foods stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Tyson Foods's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Tyson Foods's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Tyson Foods shares trade at around 12x 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.
Tyson Foods's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3802. 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 Tyson Foods's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Tyson Foods's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$5.1 billion (£3.8 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Tyson Foods's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.2 million Tyson Foods shares held short by investors – that's known as Tyson Foods's "short interest". This figure is 15% down from 2.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Tyson Foods shares can be evaluated.
Tyson Foods's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tyson Foods shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tyson Foods shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Tyson Foods's SIR currently stands at 1.2. In other words for every 100,000 Tyson Foods shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1200 shares are currently held short.
However Tyson Foods's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tyson Foods shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tyson Foods shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tyson Foods's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tyson Foods shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0078% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tyson Foods shares, roughly 8 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 Tyson Foods.

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 Tyson Foods.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 47.69
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Tyson Foods's overall score of 47.69 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 97th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Tyson Foods 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.).
Environmental score: 21.8/100
Tyson Foods's environmental score of 21.8 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Tyson Foods is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 18.79/100
Tyson Foods's social score of 18.79 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Tyson Foods is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 18.6/100
Tyson Foods's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Tyson Foods is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 4/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Tyson Foods scored a 4 out of 5 for controversy – the second-lowest score possible, reflecting that Tyson Foods has a damaged public profile.
|Total ESG score||47.69|
|Total ESG percentile||96.86|
|Environmental score percentile||8|
|Social score percentile||8|
|Governance score percentile||8|
|Level of controversy||4|
Dividend payout ratio: 22.85% of net profits
Recently Tyson Foods has paid out, on average, around 22.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tyson Foods shareholders could enjoy a 2.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tyson Foods's case, that would currently equate to about $1.73 per share.
While Tyson Foods's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Tyson Foods is investing more in its future growth.
Tyson Foods's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Tyson Foods's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 17 February 1997. 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 Tyson Foods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tyson Foods shares which in turn could have impacted Tyson Foods's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Tyson Foods's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$54.4567 up to US$81.9758. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Tyson Foods's is 0.8313. This would suggest that Tyson Foods's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
