Is Virtu Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Virtu Financial's P/E ratio

Virtu 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 7x. In other words, Virtu Financial shares trade at around 7x 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.

Virtu Financial share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 24.68% of net profits

Recently Virtu Financial has paid out, on average, around 24.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Virtu Financial shareholders could enjoy a 4.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Virtu Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.96 per share.

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

Virtu Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Virtu Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Virtu Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.6838 up to $37.8794. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Virtu Financial's is -0.0935. This would suggest that Virtu Financial's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Virtu Financial has bucked the trend.
