Is it a good time to buy Corning Incorporated stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Corning Incorporated under- or over-valued?

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

Corning Incorporated's P/E ratio

Corning Incorporated's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 45x. In other words, Corning Incorporated shares trade at around 45x 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.

Corning Incorporated's PEG ratio

Corning Incorporated's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1218. 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 Corning Incorporated's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Corning Incorporated's EBITDA

Corning Incorporated's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$2.7 billion (£2.2 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Corning Incorporated's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Corning Incorporated share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Corning Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$24.7997 up to US$35.0578. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GLW.US volatility(beta: 1.09)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Corning Incorporated's is 1.089. This would suggest that Corning Incorporated'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).

Corning Incorporated share dividends

66%

Dividend payout ratio: 65.88% of net profits

Recently Corning Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 65.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Corning Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 3.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Corning Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $1.12 per share.

Corning Incorporated'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.

Corning Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 27 March 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 February 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").
