Is NatWest Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing NatWest Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NatWest Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NatWest Group's PEG ratio
NatWest Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4946. 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 NatWest 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 NatWest Group shares
There are currently 821,409 NatWest Group shares held short by investors – that's known as NatWest Group's "short interest". This figure is 20.3% down from 1.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NatWest Group shares can be evaluated.
NatWest Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
NatWest Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NatWest Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NatWest Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). NatWest Group's SIR currently stands at 0.79. In other words for every 100,000 NatWest Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 790 shares are currently held short.
However NatWest Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NatWest Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable NatWest Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NatWest Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NatWest Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0003% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NatWest Group shares, roughly 0 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 NatWest Group.

NatWest Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 38.93% of net profits
Recently NatWest Group has paid out, on average, around 38.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NatWest Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NatWest Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.03 per share.
While NatWest Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that NatWest Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
NatWest Group's most recent dividend payout was on 3 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have NatWest Group's shares ever split?
NatWest Group's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 6 November 2008. So if you had owned 20 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NatWest Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for NatWest Group shares which in turn could have impacted NatWest Group's share price.
NatWest Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, NatWest Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.3718 up to $6.01. 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 NatWest Group's is 1.5681. This would suggest that NatWest Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
