Is Nokia Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Nokia Corporation's P/E ratio

Nokia Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Nokia Corporation shares trade at around 31x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Nokia Corporation's PEG ratio

Nokia Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0001. 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 Nokia Corporation'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 Nokia Corporation shares

There are currently 40.9 million Nokia Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Nokia Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.5% up from 38.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Nokia Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Nokia Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Nokia Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nokia Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nokia Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 32.2 million). Nokia Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.27. In other words for every 100,000 Nokia Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1270 shares are currently held short.

However Nokia Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nokia Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nokia Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nokia Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nokia Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nokia Corporation 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 Nokia Corporation.

Nokia Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 46.26% of net profits

Recently Nokia Corporation has paid out, on average, around 46.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nokia Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 5.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nokia Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.22 per share.

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

Nokia Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 13 August 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 July 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Nokia Corporation's shares ever split?

Nokia Corporation's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 11 April 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Nokia Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nokia Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Nokia Corporation's share price.

Nokia Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nokia Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.34 up to $5.24. 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 Nokia Corporation's is 0.4557. This would suggest that Nokia Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
