Is Citigroup stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Citigroup's P/E ratio

Citigroup's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Citigroup shares trade at around 7x 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.

Citigroup's PEG ratio

Citigroup's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7174. 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 Citigroup's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Citigroup'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 Citigroup.

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

Citigroup's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 29.34

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Citigroup's overall score of 29.34 (as at 12/31/2018) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 46th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Citigroup's environmental score

Environmental score: 2.97/100

Citigroup's environmental score of 2.97 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Citigroup is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Citigroup's social score

Social score: 14.93/100

Citigroup's social score of 14.93 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Citigroup is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Citigroup's governance score

Governance score: 16.44/100

Citigroup's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Citigroup is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Citigroup's controversy score

Controversy score: 4/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Citigroup scored a 4 out of 5 for controversy – the second-lowest score possible, reflecting that Citigroup has a damaged public profile.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Citigroup Inc was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 29.34
Total ESG percentile 46.36
Environmental score 2.97

Citigroup share dividends

24%

Dividend payout ratio: 24.11% of net profits

Recently Citigroup has paid out, on average, around 24.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Citigroup shareholders could enjoy a 3.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Citigroup's case, that would currently equate to about $2.04 per share.

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

Citigroup's most recent dividend payout was on 23 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Citigroup's shares ever split?

Citigroup's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 8 May 2011. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Citigroup shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Citigroup shares which in turn could have impacted Citigroup's share price.

Citigroup share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Citigroup's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.5473 up to $66.9625. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

C.US volatility(beta: 1.56)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 Citigroup's is 1.5633. This would suggest that Citigroup's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
