Is Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group under- or over-valued?

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

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's P/E ratio

Mitsubishi UFJ 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 7x. In other words, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial 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.

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's PEG ratio

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.904. 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 Mitsubishi UFJ 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.

Shorting Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shares

There are currently 10.6 million Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's "short interest". This figure is 9.3% down from 11.7 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shares can be evaluated.

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's SIR currently stands at 6.07. In other words for every 100,000 Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6070 shares are currently held short.

However Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0008% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shares, roughly 1 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group.

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group share dividends

67%

Dividend payout ratio: 66.64% of net profits

Recently Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 66.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $25 per share.

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's shares ever split?

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's shares were split on 25 March 1996.

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.6669 up to $6.02. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MUFG.US volatility(beta: 1.03)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 Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's is 1.0308. This would suggest that Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group'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).
