Is Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A's P/E ratio

Compañía Cervecerías Unidas 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 26x. In other words, Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A shares trade at around 26x 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.

Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A's PEG ratio

Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.86. 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 Compañía Cervecerías Unidas 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.

Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 148.42% of net profits

Recently Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A has paid out, on average, around 148.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A shareholders could enjoy a 9.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.388 per share.

Compañía Cervecerías Unidas 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.

Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A's shares ever split?

Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A's shares were split on a 5:2 basis on 19 December 2012. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 60% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A's share price.

Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.483 up to $19.9005. 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 Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A's is 0.3827. This would suggest that Compañía Cervecerías Unidas S-A's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
