Is TELUS Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

TELUS Corporation's P/E ratio

TELUS Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, TELUS Corporation shares trade at around 31x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

TELUS Corporation's PEG ratio

TELUS Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4. 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 TELUS Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TELUS Corporation's EBITDA

TELUS Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.2 billion.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like TELUS Corporation 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.).

TELUS Corporation share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 121.34% of net profits

Recently TELUS Corporation has paid out, on average, around 121.34% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TELUS Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 4.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TELUS Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.255 per share.

TELUS Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

TELUS Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 3 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have TELUS Corporation's shares ever split?

TELUS Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 March 2020. 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 TELUS Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for TELUS Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted TELUS Corporation's share price.

TELUS Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TELUS Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.9357 up to $24. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TU.US volatility(beta: 0.54)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 TELUS Corporation's is 0.544. This would suggest that TELUS Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
