Is Sony Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Sony Group's P/E ratio

Sony 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 15x. In other words, Sony Group shares trade at around 15x 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.

Sony Group's PEG ratio

Sony Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 35.5584. 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 Sony Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Sony Group's EBITDA

Sony Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1,952.4 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Sony Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Sony Group share dividends

9%

Dividend payout ratio: 9% of net profits

Recently Sony Group has paid out, on average, around 9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sony Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sony Group's case, that would currently equate to about $65 per share.

While Sony Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Sony Group is investing more in its future growth.

Sony Group's most recent dividend payout was on 9 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sony Group's shares ever split?

Sony Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 May 2000. 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 Sony Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sony Group shares which in turn could have impacted Sony Group's share price.

Sony Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sony Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $67.78 up to $133.3845. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SONY.US volatility(beta: 0.79)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 Sony Group's is 0.7945. This would suggest that Sony Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
