Is Volkswagen under- or over-valued?

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

Volkswagen's P/E ratio

Volkswagen's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Volkswagen shares trade at around 15x recent earnings.

Volkswagen's EBITDA

Volkswagen's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$23.1 billion.

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

Volkswagen share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.71% of net profits

Recently Volkswagen has paid out, on average, around 2.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Volkswagen shareholders could enjoy a 1.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Volkswagen's case, that would currently equate to about $4.86 per share.

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

Volkswagen's most recent dividend payout was on 18 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Volkswagen share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Volkswagen's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.133 up to $29.85. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VWAPY.US volatility(beta: 1.51)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while Volkswagen's is 1.5094. This would suggest that Volkswagen's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
