Is KB Financial Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing KB Financial Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of KB Financial Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
KB Financial Group's P/E ratio
KB Financial 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 6x. In other words, KB Financial Group shares trade at around 6x 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.
KB Financial Group's PEG ratio
KB Financial Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7171. 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 KB Financial 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.

KB Financial Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 6.01% of net profits
Recently KB Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 6.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), KB Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In KB Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1770 per share.
While KB Financial Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that KB Financial Group is investing more in its future growth.
KB Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 15 April 2018. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have KB Financial Group's shares ever split?
KB Financial Group's shares were split on a 106:100 basis on 25 December 2001. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 106 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your KB Financial Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for KB Financial Group shares which in turn could have impacted KB Financial Group's share price.
KB Financial Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, KB Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $36.26 up to $53.67. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while KB Financial Group's is 0.7106. This would suggest that KB Financial Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
