Is it a good time to buy E*TRADE Financial LLC stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is E*TRADE Financial LLC under- or over-valued?

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

E*TRADE Financial LLC's P/E ratio

E*TRADE Financial LLC's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, E*TRADE Financial LLC shares trade at around 14x 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.

E*TRADE Financial LLC's PEG ratio

E*TRADE Financial LLC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 93.7928. 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 E*TRADE Financial LLC's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like E*TRADE Financial LLC 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.).

E*TRADE Financial LLC's environmental score

Environmental score: 4.96/100

E*TRADE Financial LLC's environmental score of 4.96 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that E*TRADE Financial LLC is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

E*TRADE Financial LLC's social score

Social score: 12.48/100

E*TRADE Financial LLC's social score of 12.48 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that E*TRADE Financial LLC is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

E*TRADE Financial LLC's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that E*TRADE Financial LLC is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. E*TRADE Financial LLC scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that E*TRADE Financial LLC has managed to keep its nose clean.

E*TRADE Financial LLC share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 23.73% of net profits

Recently E*TRADE Financial LLC has paid out, on average, around 23.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), E*TRADE Financial LLC shareholders could enjoy a 1.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In E*TRADE Financial LLC's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.

While E*TRADE Financial LLC's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that E*TRADE Financial LLC is investing more in its future growth.

E*TRADE Financial LLC's most recent dividend payout was on 25 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have E*TRADE Financial LLC's shares ever split?

E*TRADE Financial LLC's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 2 June 2010. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your E*TRADE Financial LLC shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for E*TRADE Financial LLC shares which in turn could have impacted E*TRADE Financial LLC's share price.

E*TRADE Financial LLC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, E*TRADE Financial LLC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0 up to $0. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ETFC.US volatility(beta: 1.26)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while E*TRADE Financial LLC's is 1.2603. This would suggest that E*TRADE Financial LLC's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
