Is HDFC Bank under- or over-valued?

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

HDFC Bank's P/E ratio

HDFC Bank's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 158x. In other words, HDFC Bank shares trade at around 158x 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.

HDFC Bank's PEG ratio

HDFC Bank's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.97. 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 HDFC Bank's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

HDFC Bank share dividends

16%

Dividend payout ratio: 16.43% of net profits

Recently HDFC Bank has paid out, on average, around 16.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HDFC Bank shareholders could enjoy a 0.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HDFC Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $6.5 per share.

While HDFC Bank's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that HDFC Bank is investing more in its future growth.

HDFC Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 18 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have HDFC Bank's shares ever split?

HDFC Bank's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 September 2019. 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 HDFC Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for HDFC Bank shares which in turn could have impacted HDFC Bank's share price.

HDFC Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, HDFC Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $61.35 up to $84.0816. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HDB.US volatility(beta: 0.89)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 HDFC Bank's is 0.8916. This would suggest that HDFC Bank's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
