Is Banco de Chile under- or over-valued?

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

Banco de Chile's P/E ratio

Banco de Chile's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Banco de Chile shares trade at around 11x 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.

Banco de Chile's PEG ratio

Banco de Chile's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6036. 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 Banco de Chile's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Banco de Chile share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 36.41% of net profits

Recently Banco de Chile has paid out, on average, around 36.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Banco de Chile shareholders could enjoy a 2.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Banco de Chile's case, that would currently equate to about $0.005 per share.

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

Banco de Chile's most recent dividend payout was on 9 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Banco de Chile's shares ever split?

Banco de Chile's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 23 November 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Banco de Chile shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Banco de Chile shares which in turn could have impacted Banco de Chile's share price.

Banco de Chile share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Banco de Chile's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.6 up to $24.88. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Banco de Chile's is 0.354. This would suggest that Banco de Chile's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
