Is KKR-and-Co under- or over-valued?

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

KKR-and-Co's P/E ratio

KKR-and-Co's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, KKR-and-Co shares trade at around 38x 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.

KKR-and-Co's PEG ratio

KKR-and-Co's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.6001. 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 KKR-and-Co's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

KKR-and-Co share dividends

13%

Dividend payout ratio: 12.79% of net profits

Recently KKR-and-Co has paid out, on average, around 12.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), KKR-and-Co shareholders could enjoy a 1.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In KKR-and-Co's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

While KKR-and-Co's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that KKR-and-Co is investing more in its future growth.

KKR-and-Co's most recent dividend payout was on 30 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have KKR-and-Co's shares ever split?

KKR-and-Co's shares were split on 1 June 2022.

KKR-and-Co share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, KKR-and-Co's shares have ranged in value from as little as $42.92 up to $83.0489. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KKR.US volatility(beta: 1.54)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 KKR-and-Co's is 1.5386. This would suggest that KKR-and-Co's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
