Is Qiwi under- or over-valued?

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

Qiwi's P/E ratio

Qiwi's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Qiwi shares trade at around 6x 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.

Qiwi's PEG ratio

Qiwi's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2377.79. 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 Qiwi'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 Qiwi shares

There are currently 846,822 Qiwi shares held short by investors – that's known as Qiwi's "short interest". This figure is 463.3% up from 150,345 last month.

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

Qiwi's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Qiwi's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Qiwi shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Qiwi shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Qiwi's SIR currently stands at 0.76. In other words for every 100,000 Qiwi shares traded daily on the market, roughly 760 shares are currently held short.

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

Qiwi share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 53.44% of net profits

Recently Qiwi has paid out, on average, around 53.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Qiwi shareholders could enjoy a 10% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Qiwi's case, that would currently equate to about $1.03 per share.

Qiwi's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Qiwi's most recent dividend payout was on 9 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Qiwi share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Qiwi's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.0012 up to $19.9577. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

QIWI.US volatility(beta: 0.93)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Qiwi's is 0.9296. This would suggest that Qiwi's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
