Is Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição under- or over-valued?

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

Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição's P/E ratio

Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição shares trade at around 13x 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.

Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição's PEG ratio

Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.99. 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 Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição shares can be evaluated.

Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

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

Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 26.92% of net profits

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição shareholders could enjoy a 1.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição's case, that would currently equate to about $0.15 per share.

While Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição's most recent dividend payout was on 22 June 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 May 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição shares which in turn could have impacted Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição's share price.

Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição share price volatility
