Is Rolls-Royce under- or over-valued?

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

Rolls-Royce's P/E ratio

Rolls-Royce's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Rolls-Royce shares trade at around 1x recent earnings.

Rolls-Royce's PEG ratio

Rolls-Royce's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.4926. 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 Rolls-Royce's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Rolls-Royce share dividends

We're not expecting Rolls-Royce to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Rolls-Royce's shares ever split?

Rolls-Royce's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 28 August 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Rolls-Royce shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rolls-Royce shares which in turn could have impacted Rolls-Royce's share price.

Rolls-Royce share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Rolls-Royce's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.5818 up to $3.8852. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RYCEY.US volatility(beta: 1.66)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while Rolls-Royce's is 1.6599. This would suggest that Rolls-Royce's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
