Is Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's P/E ratio

Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A shares trade at around 8x 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.

Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's PEG ratio

Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4179. 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 Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 11.54% of net profits

Recently Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A has paid out, on average, around 11.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A shareholders could enjoy a 3.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.461 per share.

While Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A is investing more in its future growth.

Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's most recent dividend payout was on 12 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's shares ever split?

Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's shares were split on a 1213:1000 basis on 3 October 2021. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1213 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 17.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's share price.

Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Itaú Unibanco Holding S-A's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.461 up to $5.4695. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
