Is Oppenheimer stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Oppenheimer stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Oppenheimer's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Oppenheimer's P/E ratio
Oppenheimer's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Oppenheimer shares trade at around 5x 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.
Oppenheimer's PEG ratio
Oppenheimer's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 12. 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 Oppenheimer's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Oppenheimer share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 21.02% of net profits
Recently Oppenheimer has paid out, on average, around 21.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Oppenheimer shareholders could enjoy a 1.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Oppenheimer's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.
While Oppenheimer's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Oppenheimer is investing more in its future growth.
Oppenheimer's most recent dividend payout was on 25 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Oppenheimer share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Oppenheimer's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.88 up to $52.961. 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 Oppenheimer's is 1.1219. This would suggest that Oppenheimer's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
