Is Nomura under- or over-valued?
Valuing Nomura stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nomura's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nomura's P/E ratio
Nomura's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Nomura shares trade at around 11x 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.
Nomura's PEG ratio
Nomura's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.491. 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 Nomura's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
|Revenue TTM||$1,363.9 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||16.62%|
|Gross profit TTM||$1,074.4 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||0.34%|
|Return on equity TTM||5.11%|
|Market capitalisation||$11.3 billion|

Nomura share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 37.98% of net profits
Recently Nomura has paid out, on average, around 37.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.6% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nomura shareholders could enjoy a 5.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nomura's case, that would currently equate to about $22 per share.
While Nomura's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Nomura may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Nomura's most recent dividend payout was on 11 December 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Nomura's shares ever split?
Nomura's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 17 December 2001. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Nomura shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nomura shares which in turn could have impacted Nomura's share price.
Nomura share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Nomura's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.57 up to $5.65. 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 Nomura's is 0.9162. This would suggest that Nomura's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
