Is State Street stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

State Street's P/E ratio

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

State Street's PEG ratio

State Street's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.0585. 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 State Street's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

State Street's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like State Street.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

State Street's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 22

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and State Street's overall score of 22 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 31st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like State Street is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

State Street's environmental score

Environmental score: 0.56/100

State Street's environmental score of 0.56 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that State Street is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

State Street's social score

Social score: 12.93/100

State Street's social score of 12.93 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that State Street is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

State Street's governance score

Governance score: 9.52/100

State Street's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that State Street is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

State Street's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. State Street scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that State Street has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

State Street Corp was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 22
Total ESG percentile 30.62
Environmental score 0.56

State Street share dividends

25%

Dividend payout ratio: 25.48% of net profits

Recently State Street has paid out, on average, around 25.48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), State Street shareholders could enjoy a 2.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In State Street's case, that would currently equate to about $2.4 per share.

While State Street's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that State Street may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

State Street's most recent dividend payout was on 12 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have State Street's shares ever split?

State Street's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 May 2001. 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 State Street shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for State Street shares which in turn could have impacted State Street's share price.

State Street share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, State Street's shares have ranged in value from as little as $57.7269 up to $100.344. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

STT.US volatility(beta: 1.58)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 State Street's is 1.5752. This would suggest that State Street's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
