Is JPMorgan Chase-and-Co under- or over-valued?

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

JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's P/E ratio

JPMorgan Chase-and-Co'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, JPMorgan Chase-and-Co 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.

JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's PEG ratio

JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.0011. 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 JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares

There are currently 22.3 million JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares held short by investors – that's known as JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's "short interest". This figure is 7.4% down from 24.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares can be evaluated.

JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares traded daily (recently around 15.2 million). JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's SIR currently stands at 1.47. In other words for every 100,000 JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1470 shares are currently held short.

However JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares, or, against the total number of tradable JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0074% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares, roughly 7 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against JPMorgan Chase-and-Co.

JPMorgan Chase-and-Co share dividends

48%

Dividend payout ratio: 48.45% of net profits

Recently JPMorgan Chase-and-Co has paid out, on average, around 48.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shareholders could enjoy a 3.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's case, that would currently equate to about $3.6 per share.

While JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that JPMorgan Chase-and-Co may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's most recent dividend payout was on 31 July 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's shares ever split?

JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 12 June 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for JPMorgan Chase-and-Co shares which in turn could have impacted JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's share price.

JPMorgan Chase-and-Co share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's shares have ranged in value from as little as $76.91 up to $141.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

JPM.US volatility(beta: 1.14)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 JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's is 1.1394. This would suggest that JPMorgan Chase-and-Co's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
