Have NVIDIA's shares ever split?

NVIDIA's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 19 July 2021. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NVIDIA shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NVIDIA shares which in turn could have impacted NVIDIA's share price.

Is it a good time to buy NVIDIA 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 NVIDIA under- or over-valued?

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

NVIDIA's P/E ratio

NVIDIA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 71x. In other words, NVIDIA shares trade at around 71x 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.

NVIDIA's PEG ratio

NVIDIA's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1915. 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 NVIDIA's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

NVIDIA's EBITDA

NVIDIA's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$49.3 billion (£38.4 billion).

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

NVIDIA share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NVIDIA's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$385.6481 up to US$1255.87. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NVDA.US volatility(beta: 1.75)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while NVIDIA's is 1.749. This would suggest that NVIDIA's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

NVIDIA share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 0.72% of net profits

Recently NVIDIA has paid out, on average, around 0.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NVIDIA shareholders could enjoy a 0.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NVIDIA's case, that would currently equate to about $0.16 per share.

While NVIDIA's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that NVIDIA is investing more in its future growth.

NVIDIA's most recent dividend payout was on 27 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

NVIDIA'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 NVIDIA.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

NVIDIA's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 18.45

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and NVIDIA's overall score of 18.45 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 12nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like NVIDIA 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.).

NVIDIA's environmental score

Environmental score: 8.83/100

NVIDIA's environmental score of 8.83 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NVIDIA is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

NVIDIA's social score

Social score: 9.65/100

NVIDIA's social score of 9.65 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NVIDIA is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

NVIDIA's governance score

Governance score: 11.46/100

NVIDIA's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that NVIDIA is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

NVIDIA's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. NVIDIA scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that NVIDIA has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
