Is Chunghwa Telecom Co stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Chunghwa Telecom Co's P/E ratio

Chunghwa Telecom Co's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Chunghwa Telecom Co shares trade at around 25x 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.

Chunghwa Telecom Co share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 95.18% of net profits

Recently Chunghwa Telecom Co has paid out, on average, around 95.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.8% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chunghwa Telecom Co shareholders could enjoy a 3.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chunghwa Telecom Co's case, that would currently equate to about $4.608 per share.

Chunghwa Telecom Co'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.

Chunghwa Telecom Co's most recent dividend payout was on 12 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Chunghwa Telecom Co's shares ever split?

Chunghwa Telecom Co's shares were split on a 4:5 basis on 7 January 2011. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Chunghwa Telecom Co shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chunghwa Telecom Co shares which in turn could have impacted Chunghwa Telecom Co's share price.

Chunghwa Telecom Co share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Chunghwa Telecom Co's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.38 up to $44.1797. 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 Chunghwa Telecom Co's is -0.0411. This would suggest that Chunghwa Telecom Co's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Chunghwa Telecom Co has bucked the trend.
