Is Vale SA ADR stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Vale SA ADR's P/E ratio

Vale SA ADR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Vale SA ADR shares trade at around 5x 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.

Vale SA ADR's PEG ratio

Vale SA ADR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.6376. 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 Vale SA ADR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


Vale SA ADR's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $122.8 billion.

Vale SA ADR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 33.82% of net profits

Recently Vale SA ADR has paid out, on average, around 33.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vale SA ADR shareholders could enjoy a 4.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vale SA ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.74 per share.

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

Vale SA ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Vale SA ADR's shares ever split?

Vale SA ADR's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 13 September 2007. 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 Vale SA ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vale SA ADR shares which in turn could have impacted Vale SA ADR's share price.

Vale SA ADR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Vale SA ADR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.5617 up to $20.1762. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VALE.US volatility(beta: 0.76)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 Vale SA ADR's is 0.7633. This would suggest that Vale SA ADR's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
