Is KT Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

KT Corporation's P/E ratio

KT Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, KT Corporation shares trade at around 10x 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.

KT Corporation's PEG ratio

KT Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0771. 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 KT Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

KT Corporation's EBITDA

KT Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4,544.8 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a KT Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

KT Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 29.47% of net profits

Recently KT Corporation has paid out, on average, around 29.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), KT Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 4.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In KT Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1350 per share.

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

KT Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 24 April 2014. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

KT Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, KT Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.41 up to $15.35. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while KT Corporation's is 0.4774. This would suggest that KT Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
