Is Rio Tinto Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Rio Tinto Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Rio Tinto Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Rio Tinto Group's P/E ratio
Rio Tinto Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Rio Tinto Group shares trade at around 14x 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.

Shorting Rio Tinto Group shares
There are currently 10.5 million Rio Tinto Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Rio Tinto Group's "short interest". This figure is 9.2% up from 9.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Rio Tinto Group shares can be evaluated.
Rio Tinto Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Rio Tinto Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rio Tinto Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rio Tinto Group shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). Rio Tinto Group's SIR currently stands at 4.86. In other words for every 100,000 Rio Tinto Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4860 shares are currently held short.
However Rio Tinto Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rio Tinto Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rio Tinto Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rio Tinto Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rio Tinto Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0074% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rio Tinto Group shares, roughly 7 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 Rio Tinto Group.

Rio Tinto Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.41% of net profits
Recently Rio Tinto Group has paid out, on average, around 1.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Rio Tinto Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Rio Tinto Group's case, that would currently equate to about $4.664 per share.
While Rio Tinto Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Rio Tinto Group is investing more in its future growth.
Rio Tinto Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Rio Tinto Group's shares ever split?
Rio Tinto Group's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 29 April 2010. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Rio Tinto Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rio Tinto Group shares which in turn could have impacted Rio Tinto Group's share price.
Rio Tinto Group share price volatility
