Is Bancolombia S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Bancolombia S-A's P/E ratio

Bancolombia 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 24x. In other words, Bancolombia S-A shares trade at around 24x 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.

Bancolombia S-A's PEG ratio

Bancolombia S-A's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.65. 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 Bancolombia 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 Bancolombia S-A shares

There are currently 1.7 million Bancolombia S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Bancolombia S-A's "short interest". This figure is 20.4% down from 2.1 million last month.

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

Bancolombia S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bancolombia S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bancolombia S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bancolombia S-A shares traded daily (recently around 274693.76026273). Bancolombia S-A's SIR currently stands at 6.09. In other words for every 100,000 Bancolombia S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6090 shares are currently held short.

However Bancolombia S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bancolombia S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bancolombia S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bancolombia S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bancolombia S-A shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bancolombia S-A shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Bancolombia S-A.

Bancolombia S-A share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 565.22% of net profits

Recently Bancolombia S-A has paid out, on average, around 565.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bancolombia S-A shareholders could enjoy a 3.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bancolombia S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $1.21 per share.

Bancolombia 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.

Bancolombia S-A's most recent dividend payout was on 13 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Bancolombia S-A share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bancolombia S-A's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.4017 up to $41.6689. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CIB.US volatility(beta: 1.03)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Bancolombia S-A's is 1.0335. This would suggest that Bancolombia S-A's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
