Is Nintendo CoLtd under- or over-valued?

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

Nintendo CoLtd's P/E ratio

Nintendo CoLtd's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Nintendo CoLtd shares trade at around 20x recent earnings.

Nintendo CoLtd's PEG ratio

Nintendo CoLtd's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.2487. 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 Nintendo CoLtd's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Nintendo CoLtd share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 28.14% of net profits

Recently Nintendo CoLtd has paid out, on average, around 28.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nintendo CoLtd shareholders could enjoy a 2.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nintendo CoLtd's case, that would currently equate to about $1.9 per share.

While Nintendo CoLtd's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Nintendo CoLtd may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Nintendo CoLtd's most recent dividend payout was on 16 December 2015. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
