Is Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's P/E ratio

Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior 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 13x. In other words, Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A shares trade at around 13x 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 Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's PEG ratio

Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.58. 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 Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior 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.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A shares can be evaluated.

Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A shares traded daily (recently around 118043.37016575). Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's SIR currently stands at 3.62. In other words for every 100,000 Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3620 shares are currently held short.

However Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior 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 Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0141% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A shares, roughly 14 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 Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A.

70%

Dividend payout ratio: 70.17% of net profits

Recently Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A has paid out, on average, around 70.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.4% of the current stock value.

In Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.

Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A'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.
