Is Prudential Public Limited Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Prudential Public Limited Company's P/E ratio

Prudential Public Limited Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Prudential Public Limited Company shares trade at around 24x 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.

Prudential Public Limited Company's PEG ratio

Prudential Public Limited Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5712. 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 Prudential Public Limited Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Prudential Public Limited Company's EBITDA

Prudential Public Limited Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.9 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Prudential Public Limited Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Prudential Public Limited Company share dividends

37%

Dividend payout ratio: 37.21% of net profits

Recently Prudential Public Limited Company has paid out, on average, around 37.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Prudential Public Limited Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Prudential Public Limited Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.176 per share.

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

Prudential Public Limited Company's most recent dividend payout was on 26 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Prudential Public Limited Company's shares ever split?

Prudential Public Limited Company's shares were split on a 1031:1000 basis on 19 September 2021. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1031 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Prudential Public Limited Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Prudential Public Limited Company shares which in turn could have impacted Prudential Public Limited Company's share price.

Prudential Public Limited Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Prudential Public Limited Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.26 up to $41.9004. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PUK.US volatility(beta: 1.37)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 Prudential Public Limited Company's is 1.372. This would suggest that Prudential Public Limited Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
