Is Yum! Brands stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Yum! Brands share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 51.44% of net profits

Recently Yum! Brands has paid out, on average, around 51.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Yum! Brands shareholders could enjoy a 1.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Yum! Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $2.315 per share.

Yum! Brands'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.

Yum! Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 9 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Yum! Brands's shares ever split?

Yum! Brands's shares were split on a 1391:1000 basis on 31 October 2016. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1391 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Yum! Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 28.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Yum! Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Yum! Brands's share price.

Yum! Brands share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Yum! Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $103.0165 up to $133.1571. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

YUM.US volatility(beta: 0.98)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 Yum! Brands's is 0.9835. This would suggest that Yum! Brands's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
