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

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

KKR-and-CoInc's P/E ratio

KKR-and-CoInc'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, KKR-and-CoInc 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.

KKR-and-CoInc's PEG ratio

KKR-and-CoInc's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 18.2023. 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-CoInc's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting KKR-and-CoInc shares

There are currently 7.9 million KKR-and-CoInc shares held short by investors – that's known as KKR-and-CoInc's "short interest". This figure is 15.4% down from 9.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting KKR-and-CoInc shares can be evaluated.

KKR-and-CoInc's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

KKR-and-CoInc's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of KKR-and-CoInc shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of KKR-and-CoInc shares traded daily (recently around 3.6 million). KKR-and-CoInc's SIR currently stands at 2.17. In other words for every 100,000 KKR-and-CoInc shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2170 shares are currently held short.

However KKR-and-CoInc's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of KKR-and-CoInc shares, or, against the total number of tradable KKR-and-CoInc shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case KKR-and-CoInc's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 KKR-and-CoInc shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0142% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable KKR-and-CoInc shares, roughly 14 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against KKR-and-CoInc.

KKR-and-CoInc share dividends

20%

Dividend payout ratio: 20.22% of net profits

Recently KKR-and-CoInc has paid out, on average, around 20.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.79% 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-CoInc shareholders could enjoy a 0.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In KKR-and-CoInc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.

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

KKR-and-CoInc's most recent dividend payout was on 31 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

KKR-and-CoInc share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, KKR-and-CoInc's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.2692 up to $73.83. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KKR.US volatility(beta: 1.37)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-CoInc's is 1.3693. This would suggest that KKR-and-CoInc's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
