Is Truist Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Truist Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

Truist Financial 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 14x. In other words, Truist Financial Corporation shares trade at around 14x 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.

Truist Financial Corporation's PEG ratio

Truist Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0915. 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 Truist Financial 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.

Shorting Truist Financial Corporation shares

There are currently 11.4 million Truist Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Truist Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% up from 11.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Truist Financial Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Truist Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Truist Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Truist Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Truist Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 4.0 million). Truist Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.89. In other words for every 100,000 Truist Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2890 shares are currently held short.

However Truist Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Truist Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Truist Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Truist Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Truist Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0086% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Truist Financial Corporation shares, roughly 9 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Truist Financial Corporation.

Truist Financial Corporation share dividends

38%

Dividend payout ratio: 37.5% of net profits

Recently Truist Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 37.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Truist Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Truist Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.

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

Truist Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Truist Financial Corporation's shares ever split?

Truist Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 August 1998. 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 Truist Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Truist Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Truist Financial Corporation's share price.

Truist Financial Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Truist Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.7149 up to $62.1788. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TFC.US volatility(beta: 1.33)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 Truist Financial Corporation's is 1.3302. This would suggest that Truist Financial Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
