Is it a good time to buy Juniper Networks stock?

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 Juniper Networks under- or over-valued?

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

Juniper Networks's P/E ratio

Juniper Networks's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 50x. In other words, Juniper Networks shares trade at around 50x 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.

Juniper Networks's PEG ratio

Juniper Networks's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1853. 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 Juniper Networks's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Juniper Networks's EBITDA

Juniper Networks's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$660.6 million (£0.0 million).

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

Juniper Networks share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Juniper Networks's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$24.5284 up to US$37.8142. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Juniper Networks share dividends

42%

Dividend payout ratio: 42.31% of net profits

Recently Juniper Networks has paid out, on average, around 42.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Juniper Networks shareholders could enjoy a 2.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Juniper Networks's case, that would currently equate to about $0.88 per share.

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

Juniper Networks's most recent dividend payout was on 23 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").
