Is Bunge under- or over-valued?

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

Bunge's P/E ratio

Bunge's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Bunge shares trade at around 6x 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.

Bunge's PEG ratio

Bunge's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7053. 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 Bunge's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Bunge's EBITDA

Bunge's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.8 billion.

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

Shorting Bunge shares

There are currently 3.4 million Bunge shares held short by investors – that's known as Bunge's "short interest". This figure is 3% down from 3.5 million last month.

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

Bunge's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bunge's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bunge shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bunge shares traded daily (recently around 948670.9039548). Bunge's SIR currently stands at 3.54. In other words for every 100,000 Bunge shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3540 shares are currently held short.

However Bunge's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bunge shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bunge shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bunge's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bunge shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0275% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bunge shares, roughly 28 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 Bunge.

Bunge'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 Bunge.

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

Bunge's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 32.85

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Bunge's overall score of 32.85 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 72nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Bunge's environmental score

Environmental score: 10.68/100

Bunge share dividends

16%

Dividend payout ratio: 15.96% of net profits

Recently Bunge has paid out, on average, around 15.96% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.36% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bunge shareholders could enjoy a 2.36% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bunge's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.

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

Bunge's most recent dividend payout was on 1 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Bunge share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bunge's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.7779 up to $90.38. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BG.US volatility(beta: 0.69)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 Bunge's is 0.6941. This would suggest that Bunge's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
