Is Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's P/E ratio

Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A shares trade at around 10x 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 Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's PEG ratio

Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.58. 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 Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

In Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.

Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior S-A'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.
