Is Banco de Chile under- or over-valued?

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

Banco de Chile's P/E ratio

Banco de Chile's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Banco de Chile shares trade at around 9x 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.

Banco de Chile's PEG ratio

Banco de Chile's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5641. 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 de Chile'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 de Chile shares

There are currently 350,296 Banco de Chile shares held short by investors – that's known as Banco de Chile's "short interest". This figure is 13.6% down from 405,428 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Banco de Chile shares can be evaluated.

Banco de Chile's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Banco de Chile's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Banco de Chile shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Banco de Chile shares traded daily (recently around 84003.836930456). Banco de Chile's SIR currently stands at 4.17. In other words for every 100,000 Banco de Chile shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4170 shares are currently held short.

However Banco de Chile's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Banco de Chile shares, or, against the total number of tradable Banco de Chile shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Banco de Chile's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Banco de Chile shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.002% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Banco de Chile shares, roughly 2 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 de Chile.

Banco de Chile share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 42.05% of net profits

Recently Banco de Chile has paid out, on average, around 42.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Banco de Chile shareholders could enjoy a 3.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Banco de Chile's case, that would currently equate to about $0.005 per share.

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

Banco de Chile's most recent dividend payout was on 8 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Banco de Chile's shares ever split?

Banco de Chile's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 22 November 2018. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Banco de Chile shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Banco de Chile shares which in turn could have impacted Banco de Chile's share price.

Banco de Chile share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Banco de Chile's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.6621 up to $24.88. 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 Banco de Chile's is 0.405. This would suggest that Banco de Chile's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
