Is The Charles Schwab Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

The Charles Schwab Corporation's P/E ratio

The Charles Schwab Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 29x. In other words, The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks trade at around 29x 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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.

The Charles Schwab Corporation's PEG ratio

The Charles Schwab Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.017. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into The Charles Schwab Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 14.4 million The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as The Charles Schwab Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% down from 14.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks can be evaluated.

The Charles Schwab Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In other words for every 100,000 The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2760 stocks are currently held short.

However The Charles Schwab Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Charles Schwab Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0096% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against The Charles Schwab Corporation.

The Charles Schwab Corporation stock dividends

26%

Dividend payout ratio: 25.81% of net profits

Recently The Charles Schwab Corporation has paid out, on average, around 25.81% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Charles Schwab Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Charles Schwab Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

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

The Charles Schwab Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 27 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 12 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks ever split?

The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks were split on a 3:2 basis on 31 May 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for The Charles Schwab Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted The Charles Schwab Corporation's stock price.

The Charles Schwab Corporation stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, The Charles Schwab Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $33.5502 up to $76.1862. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that The Charles Schwab Corporation's stocks are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
