Is Cameco stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Cameco stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cameco's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cameco's P/E ratio
Cameco's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 219x. In other words, Cameco shares trade at around 219x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Cameco's PEG ratio
Cameco's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.33. 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 Cameco's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Cameco's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $529.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Cameco's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$2.2 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||13.21%|
|Gross profit TTM||$629.1 million|
|Return on assets TTM||2.21%|
|Return on equity TTM||309.87%|
|Market capitalisation||$13 billion|
TTM: trailing 12 months
Cameco share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 15.51% of net profits
Recently Cameco has paid out, on average, around 15.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cameco shareholders could enjoy a 0.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cameco's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.
While Cameco's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Cameco is investing more in its future growth.
Cameco's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Cameco's shares ever split?
Cameco's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 23 February 2006. 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 Cameco shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cameco shares which in turn could have impacted Cameco's share price.
Cameco share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Cameco's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.2621 up to $31.1701. 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 Cameco's is 0.9489. This would suggest that Cameco's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
