Is WPP PLC ADR stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

WPP PLC ADR's P/E ratio

WPP PLC ADR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, WPP PLC ADR shares trade at around 17x 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.


WPP PLC ADR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9411. 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 WPP PLC ADR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


WPP PLC ADR's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.5 billion.

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

WPP PLC ADR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 57.67% of net profits

Recently WPP PLC ADR has paid out, on average, around 57.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), WPP PLC ADR shareholders could enjoy a 3.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WPP PLC ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.337 per share.

WPP PLC ADR'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.

WPP PLC ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 31 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 October 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have WPP PLC ADR's shares ever split?

WPP PLC ADR's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 November 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your WPP PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for WPP PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted WPP PLC ADR's share price.

WPP PLC ADR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, WPP PLC ADR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.7901 up to $80.0436. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WPP.US volatility(beta: 1.2)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 WPP PLC ADR's is 1.2008. This would suggest that WPP PLC ADR's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
