Is Gerdau SA ADR stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Recently Gerdau SA ADR has paid out, on average, around 7.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 12.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Gerdau SA ADR shareholders could enjoy a 12.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Gerdau SA ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $3.48 per share.

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

Have Gerdau SA ADR's shares ever split?

Gerdau SA ADR's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 June 2008. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Gerdau SA ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gerdau SA ADR shares which in turn could have impacted Gerdau SA ADR's share price.

GGB.US volatility(beta: 1.36)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 Gerdau SA ADR's is 1.3643. This would suggest that Gerdau SA ADR's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
