Is Banco Santander SA ADR stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Banco Santander SA ADR's P/E ratio

Banco Santander SA ADR'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, Banco Santander SA ADR 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.

Banco Santander SA ADR's PEG ratio

Banco Santander SA ADR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 13.2958. 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 Banco Santander SA ADR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Banco Santander SA ADR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 19.82% of net profits

Recently Banco Santander SA ADR has paid out, on average, around 19.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.32% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Banco Santander SA ADR shareholders could enjoy a 3.32% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Banco Santander SA ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.118 per share.

While Banco Santander SA ADR's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Banco Santander SA ADR is investing more in its future growth.

Banco Santander SA ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 4 May 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 April 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Banco Santander SA ADR's shares ever split?

Banco Santander SA ADR's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 June 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Banco Santander SA ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Banco Santander SA ADR shares which in turn could have impacted Banco Santander SA ADR's share price.

Banco Santander SA ADR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Banco Santander SA ADR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.2128 up to $4.09. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SAN.US volatility(beta: 1.39)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 Banco Santander SA ADR's is 1.3915. This would suggest that Banco Santander SA ADR's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
