Is Credit Suisse Group under- or over-valued?

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

Credit Suisse Group's P/E ratio

Credit Suisse Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Credit Suisse Group shares trade at around 7x 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.

Credit Suisse Group's PEG ratio

Credit Suisse Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5325. 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 Credit Suisse Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Credit Suisse Group share dividends

30%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.05% of net profits

Recently Credit Suisse Group has paid out, on average, around 30.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Credit Suisse Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Credit Suisse Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.293 per share.

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

Credit Suisse Group's most recent dividend payout was on 20 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Credit Suisse Group's shares ever split?

Credit Suisse Group's shares were split on a 1024:1000 basis on 30 April 2013. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1024 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Credit Suisse Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Credit Suisse Group shares which in turn could have impacted Credit Suisse Group's share price.

Credit Suisse Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Credit Suisse Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.06 up to $14.7978. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CS.US volatility(beta: 1.57)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Credit Suisse Group's is 1.5684. This would suggest that Credit Suisse Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
