Is Popular stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Popular stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Popular's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Popular's P/E ratio
Popular's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Popular shares trade at around 7x 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.
Popular's PEG ratio
Popular's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.75. 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 Popular's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Popular share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 16.02% of net profits
Recently Popular has paid out, on average, around 16.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Popular shareholders could enjoy a 2.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Popular's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.
While Popular's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Popular is investing more in its future growth.
Popular's most recent dividend payout was on 2 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Popular's shares ever split?
Popular's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 29 May 2012. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Popular shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Popular shares which in turn could have impacted Popular's share price.
Popular share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Popular's shares have ranged in value from as little as $69.9133 up to $97.4212. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Popular's is 0.9173. This would suggest that Popular's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
