Is Truist Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Truist Financial's P/E ratio

Truist Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Truist Financial shares trade at around 10x 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's PEG ratio

Truist Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8768. 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's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

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

Truist Financial's environmental score

Environmental score: 4.51/100

Truist Financial's social score

Social score: 15.02/100

Truist Financial's social score of 15.02 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Truist Financial is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Truist Financial share dividends

32%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.13% of net profits

Recently Truist Financial has paid out, on average, around 32.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.3% 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 shareholders could enjoy a 4.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Truist Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.

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

Truist Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Truist Financial's shares ever split?

Truist Financial'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 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Truist Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Truist Financial's share price.

Truist Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Truist Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.5374 up to $63.7458. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TFC.US volatility(beta: 1.06)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's is 1.0586. This would suggest that Truist Financial's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
