Is Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group under- or over-valued?

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

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's P/E ratio

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group'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, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group 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.

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's PEG ratio

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0019. 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 Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group share dividends

20%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.78% of net profits

Recently Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 19.78% 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), Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $26 per share.

While Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group is investing more in its future growth.

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's shares ever split?

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's shares were split on 25 March 1996.

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.53 up to $6.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MUFG.US volatility(beta: 1.01)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 Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's is 1.0099. This would suggest that Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
