Is Goldman Sachs Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Goldman Sachs Group's P/E ratio

Goldman Sachs Group'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, Goldman Sachs Group 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.

Goldman Sachs Group's PEG ratio

Goldman Sachs Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2531. 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 Goldman Sachs Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Social score: 19.67/100

Goldman Sachs Group share dividends

19%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.22% of net profits

Recently Goldman Sachs Group has paid out, on average, around 19.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Goldman Sachs Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Goldman Sachs Group's case, that would currently equate to about $8 per share.

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

Goldman Sachs Group's most recent dividend payout was on 28 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Goldman Sachs Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Goldman Sachs Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $275.7581 up to $415.7195. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GS.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 Goldman Sachs Group's is 1.3644. This would suggest that Goldman Sachs Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
