Is Woori Financial Group under- or over-valued?

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

Woori Financial Group's P/E ratio

Woori Financial 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 4x. In other words, Woori Financial Group shares trade at around 4x 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.

Woori Financial Group's PEG ratio

Woori Financial Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6457. 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 Woori Financial 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.

Shorting Woori Financial Group shares

There are currently 25,939 Woori Financial Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Woori Financial Group's "short interest". This figure is 49.7% down from 51,534 last month.

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

Woori Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Woori Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Woori Financial Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Woori Financial Group shares traded daily (recently around 13302.051282051). Woori Financial Group's SIR currently stands at 1.95. In other words for every 100,000 Woori Financial Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1950 shares are currently held short.

However Woori Financial Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Woori Financial Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Woori Financial Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Woori Financial Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Woori Financial Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0002% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Woori Financial Group shares, roughly 0 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 Woori Financial Group.

Woori Financial Group share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 28.95% of net profits

Recently Woori Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 28.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Woori Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 6.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Woori Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $510 per share.

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

Woori Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 20 April 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Woori Financial Group's shares ever split?

Woori Financial Group's shares were split on a 839:1000 basis on 21 May 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 839 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Woori Financial Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 19.2% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Woori Financial Group shares which in turn could have impacted Woori Financial Group's share price.

Woori Financial Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Woori Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.2893 up to $32.1234. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WF.US volatility(beta: 0.55)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 Woori Financial Group's is 0.5513. This would suggest that Woori Financial Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
