Is NetEase stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing NetEase stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NetEase's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NetEase's P/E ratio
NetEase's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, NetEase shares trade at around 21x 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.
NetEase's PEG ratio
NetEase's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0051. 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 NetEase's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
NetEase's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $22.5 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a NetEase's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$96.5 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||20.34%|
|Gross profit TTM||$52.8 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||7.52%|
|Return on equity TTM||18.45%|
|Market capitalisation||$59.2 billion|

NetEase's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like NetEase.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
NetEase's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 17.05
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and NetEase's overall score of 17.05 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 16th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like NetEase is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
NetEase's environmental score
Environmental score: 0.86/100
NetEase's environmental score of 0.86 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NetEase is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
NetEase's social score
Social score: 7.49/100
NetEase's social score of 7.49 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NetEase is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
NetEase's governance score
Governance score: 7.42/100
NetEase's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that NetEase is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
NetEase's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. NetEase scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that NetEase has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
NetEase share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 4.86% of net profits
Recently NetEase has paid out, on average, around 4.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.57% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NetEase shareholders could enjoy a 1.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NetEase's case, that would currently equate to about $9.566 per share.
While NetEase's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that NetEase is investing more in its future growth.
NetEase's most recent dividend payout was on 24 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have NetEase's shares ever split?
NetEase's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 2 October 2020. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NetEase shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NetEase shares which in turn could have impacted NetEase's share price.
NetEase share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, NetEase's shares have ranged in value from as little as $52.5952 up to $107.3091. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while NetEase's is 0.5007. This would suggest that NetEase's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
