Stock performance after earnings

Stocks frequently make significant price moves in the wake of earnings reports. But those price movements can be volatile, and direction is hard to predict. It’s important to use caution when trading shares immediately before or after an earnings announcement.

The value of any investment can go up or down depending on news, trends and market conditions. We are not investment advisers, so do your own due diligence to understand the risks before you invest.

Is Tencent under- or over-valued?

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

Tencent's P/E ratio

Tencent's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Tencent shares trade at around 21x recent earnings.

Tencent's PEG ratio

Tencent's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2649. 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 Tencent's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Tencent's EBITDA

Tencent's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $183.4 billion.

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

Tencent share dividends

7%

Dividend payout ratio: 6.77% of net profits

Recently Tencent has paid out, on average, around 6.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tencent shareholders could enjoy a 0.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tencent's case, that would currently equate to about $1.347 per share.

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

Tencent's most recent dividend payout was on 21 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Tencent's shares ever split?

Tencent's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 19 May 2014. 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 Tencent shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tencent shares which in turn could have impacted Tencent's share price.

Tencent share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tencent's shares have ranged in value from as little as $53.47 up to $99.1348. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TCEHY.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 (PINK average) beta is 1, while Tencent's is 0.5357. This would suggest that Tencent's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
