Is Vedanta stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Vedanta's P/E ratio

Vedanta's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Vedanta shares trade at around 6x 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.

Vedanta's EBITDA

Vedanta's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $372.6 billion.

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

Vedanta share dividends

2%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.81% of net profits

Recently Vedanta has paid out, on average, around 1.81% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vedanta shareholders could enjoy a 9.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vedanta's case, that would currently equate to about $18.5 per share.

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

Vedanta's most recent dividend payout was on 22 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Vedanta's shares ever split?

Vedanta's shares were split on a 599:1000 basis on 8 September 2013. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 599 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Vedanta shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.9% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vedanta shares which in turn could have impacted Vedanta's share price.

Vedanta share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Vedanta's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0 up to $0. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VEDL.US volatility(beta: 1.59)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 Vedanta's is 1.591. This would suggest that Vedanta's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
