Is China Telecom Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

China Telecom Corporation's P/E ratio

China Telecom Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, China Telecom Corporation shares trade at around 8x 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.

China Telecom Corporation's PEG ratio

China Telecom Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9804. 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 China Telecom Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

China Telecom Corporation share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 7042.53% of net profits

Recently China Telecom Corporation has paid out, on average, around 7042.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), China Telecom Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 6.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In China Telecom Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.015 per share.

China Telecom Corporation'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.

China Telecom Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 10 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 May 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

China Telecom Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, China Telecom Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0 up to $0. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CHA.US volatility(beta: 0.57)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 China Telecom Corporation's is 0.5679. This would suggest that China Telecom Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
