Is Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's P/E ratio

Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares trade at around 34x 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.

Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's PEG ratio

Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6102. 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 Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares

There are currently 2.5 million Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's "short interest". This figure is 7.8% down from 2.7 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares can be evaluated.

Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's SIR currently stands at 1.14. In other words for every 100,000 Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1140 shares are currently held short.

However Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares, roughly 0 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 Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A.

Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A share dividends

40%

Dividend payout ratio: 39.53% of net profits

Recently Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A has paid out, on average, around 39.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shareholders could enjoy a 1.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.059 per share.

While Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's most recent dividend payout was on 9 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's shares ever split?

Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's shares were split on a 48:47 basis on 10 April 2012. So if you had owned 47 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 48 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's share price.

Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A share price volatility

This would suggest that Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S-A's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
