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 7x. In other words, KKR-and-CoInc stocks trade at around 7x 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 stocks 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 0.13. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks 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 stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

How to short and sell KKR-and-CoInc stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "KKR.US"

  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 8.8 million KKR-and-CoInc stocks held short by investors – that's known as KKR-and-CoInc's "short interest". This figure is 4.6% down from 9.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting KKR-and-CoInc stocks 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 stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of KKR-and-CoInc stocks traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). KKR-and-CoInc's SIR currently stands at 3.38. In other words for every 100,000 KKR-and-CoInc stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3380 stocks are currently held short.

However KKR-and-CoInc's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of KKR-and-CoInc stocks, or, against the total number of tradable KKR-and-CoInc stocks (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 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 KKR-and-CoInc stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0158% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable KKR-and-CoInc stocks, roughly 16 stocks are currently held short).

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

KKR-and-CoInc stock dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 26.07% of net profits

Recently KKR-and-CoInc has paid out, on average, around 26.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.05% 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 1.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In KKR-and-CoInc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.55 per share.

While KKR-and-CoInc's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that KKR-and-CoInc may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

KKR-and-CoInc's most recent dividend payout was on 1 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 14 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

KKR-and-CoInc stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, KKR-and-CoInc's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $27.7101 up to $58.9944. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KKR.US volatility(beta: 1.41)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while KKR-and-CoInc's is 1.4076. This would suggest that KKR-and-CoInc's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
