Is News Corp B stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

News Corp B's P/E ratio

News Corp B's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, News Corp B shares trade at around 19x 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.

News Corp B's PEG ratio

News Corp B's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2648. 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 News Corp B's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

News Corp B's EBITDA

News Corp B's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.3 billion.

News Corp B share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.65% of net profits

Recently News Corp B has paid out, on average, around 21.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), News Corp B shareholders could enjoy a 1.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In News Corp B's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

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

News Corp B's most recent dividend payout was on 12 April 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have News Corp B's shares ever split?

News Corp B's shares were split on a 2:3 basis on 15 November 2010. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your News Corp B shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for News Corp B shares which in turn could have impacted News Corp B's share price.

News Corp B share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, News Corp B's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.18 up to $25.451. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NWS.US volatility(beta: 1.33)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while News Corp B's is 1.3326. This would suggest that News Corp B's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
