Is HSBC Holdings PLC ADR stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's P/E ratio

HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, HSBC Holdings PLC ADR shares trade at around 9x 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.

HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's PEG ratio

HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5786. 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 HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

HSBC Holdings PLC ADR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 31.56% of net profits

Recently HSBC Holdings PLC ADR has paid out, on average, around 31.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HSBC Holdings PLC ADR shareholders could enjoy a 4.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

While HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that HSBC Holdings PLC ADR may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 26 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's shares ever split?

HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's shares were split on a 6:1 basis on 6 July 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 6 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your HSBC Holdings PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 83.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for HSBC Holdings PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's share price.

HSBC Holdings PLC ADR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.0272 up to $38.4407. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HSBC.US volatility(beta: 0.62)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 HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's is 0.617. This would suggest that HSBC Holdings PLC ADR's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
