Is Eaton Vance under- or over-valued?

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

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.

Eaton Vance's PEG ratio

Eaton Vance's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.0246. 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 Eaton Vance's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Eaton Vance's EBITDA

Eaton Vance share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 156.25% of net profits

Recently Eaton Vance has paid out, on average, around 156.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eaton Vance shareholders could enjoy a 2.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eaton Vance's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.

Eaton Vance'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.

Eaton Vance's most recent dividend payout was on 11 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Eaton Vance's shares ever split?

Eaton Vance's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 January 2005. 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 Eaton Vance shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eaton Vance shares which in turn could have impacted Eaton Vance's share price.

Eaton Vance share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Eaton Vance's shares have ranged in value from as little as $66.85 up to $75.61. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EV.US volatility(beta: 1.17)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 Eaton Vance's is 1.1713. This would suggest that Eaton Vance's shares 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).
