Is Credicorp under- or over-valued?
Valuing Credicorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Credicorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Credicorp's P/E ratio
Credicorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 117x. In other words, Credicorp shares trade at around 117x 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.
Credicorp's PEG ratio
Credicorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.16. 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 Credicorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Credicorp'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 Credicorp.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Credicorp's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 37.25
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Credicorp's overall score of 37.25 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 69th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Credicorp 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.).
Credicorp's environmental score
Environmental score: 9.52/100
Credicorp's environmental score of 9.52 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Credicorp is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Credicorp's social score
Social score: 17.77/100
Credicorp's social score of 17.77 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Credicorp is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Credicorp's governance score
Governance score: 20.96/100
Credicorp's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Credicorp is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Credicorp's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Credicorp scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Credicorp has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Credicorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 49.1% of net profits
Recently Credicorp has paid out, on average, around 49.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Credicorp shareholders could enjoy a 0.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Credicorp's case, that would currently equate to about $5 per share.
While Credicorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Credicorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Credicorp's most recent dividend payout was on 7 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Credicorp's shares ever split?
Credicorp's shares were split on a 1039:1000 basis on 16 April 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1039 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Credicorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Credicorp shares which in turn could have impacted Credicorp's share price.
Credicorp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Credicorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $84.5405 up to $161.606. 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 Credicorp's is 0.8454. This would suggest that Credicorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
