Is Nomura under- or over-valued?

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

Nomura's P/E ratio

Nomura's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, Nomura shares trade at around 30x 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.

Nomura's PEG ratio

Nomura's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0226. 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 Nomura'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 Nomura shares

There are currently 213,631 Nomura shares held short by investors – that's known as Nomura's "short interest". This figure is 24.6% down from 283,332 last month.

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

Nomura's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Nomura's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nomura shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nomura shares traded daily (recently around 305187.14285714). Nomura's SIR currently stands at 0.7. In other words for every 100,000 Nomura shares traded daily on the market, roughly 700 shares are currently held short.

However Nomura's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nomura shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nomura shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nomura's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nomura shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0001% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nomura 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 Nomura.

Nomura share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.09% of net profits

Recently Nomura has paid out, on average, around 1.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nomura shareholders could enjoy a 6.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nomura's case, that would currently equate to about $35 per share.

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

Nomura's most recent dividend payout was on 10 December 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Nomura's shares ever split?

Nomura's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 16 December 2001. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Nomura shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nomura shares which in turn could have impacted Nomura's share price.

Nomura share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nomura's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.3233 up to $6.5582. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NMR.US volatility(beta: 0.84)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 Nomura's is 0.8419. This would suggest that Nomura's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
