Is Vodafone Group under- or over-valued?

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

Vodafone Group's P/E ratio

Vodafone Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 411x. In other words, Vodafone Group shares trade at around 411x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Vodafone Group's PEG ratio

Vodafone Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6057. 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 Vodafone Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Vodafone Group's EBITDA

Vodafone Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $12.1 billion.

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

Shorting Vodafone Group shares

There are currently 12.5 million Vodafone Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Vodafone Group's "short interest". This figure is 9.9% down from 13.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vodafone Group shares can be evaluated.

Vodafone Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vodafone Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vodafone Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vodafone Group shares traded daily (recently around 3.7 million). Vodafone Group's SIR currently stands at 3.35. In other words for every 100,000 Vodafone Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3350 shares are currently held short.

However Vodafone Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vodafone Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vodafone Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vodafone Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vodafone Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0045% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vodafone Group shares, roughly 5 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 Vodafone Group.

Vodafone Group share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 2408.43% of net profits

Recently Vodafone Group has paid out, on average, around 2408.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vodafone Group shareholders could enjoy a 6.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vodafone Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.09 per share.

Vodafone Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Vodafone Group's most recent dividend payout was on 5 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Vodafone Group's shares ever split?

Vodafone Group's shares were split on a 4905:5000 basis on 23 February 2014. So if you had owned 5000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4905 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Vodafone Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1.9% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vodafone Group shares which in turn could have impacted Vodafone Group's share price.

Vodafone Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Vodafone Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.3659 up to $19.7574. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VOD.US volatility(beta: 0.89)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Vodafone Group's is 0.8863. This would suggest that Vodafone Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
