Is Metro stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Metro financials

Revenue TTM $20.1 billion

Return on assets TTM 6.59%
Return on equity TTM 14.46%

Metro share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 23.54% of net profits

Recently Metro has paid out, on average, around 23.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Metro shareholders could enjoy a 1.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Metro's case, that would currently equate to about $1.183 per share.

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

Metro's most recent dividend payout was on 19 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Metro's shares ever split?

Metro's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 11 February 2015. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Metro shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Metro shares which in turn could have impacted Metro's share price.

Metro share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Metro's shares have ranged in value from as little as $48.558 up to $57.8373. 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 (PINK average) beta is 1, while Metro's is 0.0439. This would suggest that Metro's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
