Is Bunge stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Bunge stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Bunge's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Bunge's P/E ratio
Bunge's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Bunge shares trade at around 9x 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.
Bunge's PEG ratio
Bunge's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7053. 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 Bunge's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Bunge's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Bunge's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$66.7 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||3.8%|
|Gross profit TTM||$3.9 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||5.68%|
|Return on equity TTM||16.55%|
|Market capitalisation||$13.6 billion|

Bunge's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Bunge.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Bunge's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 32.85
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Bunge's overall score of 32.85 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 72nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Bunge is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Bunge's environmental score
Environmental score: 10.68/100
Bunge's social score
Social score: 13.14/100
Bunge's governance score
Governance score: 4.03/100
Bunge's controversy score
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Bunge scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Bunge hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
Bunge share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 19.35% of net profits
Recently Bunge has paid out, on average, around 19.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bunge shareholders could enjoy a 2.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bunge's case, that would currently equate to about $2.5 per share.
While Bunge's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Bunge is investing more in its future growth.
Bunge's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Bunge share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Bunge's shares have ranged in value from as little as $78.8516 up to $115.9553. 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 Bunge's is 0.6502. This would suggest that Bunge's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
