Is Popular stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Popular share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 15.44% of net profits

Recently Popular has paid out, on average, around 15.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Popular shareholders could enjoy a 3.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Popular's case, that would currently equate to about $2.2 per share.

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

Popular's most recent dividend payout was on 3 July 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Popular's shares ever split?

Popular's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 30 May 2012. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Popular shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Popular shares which in turn could have impacted Popular's share price.

Popular share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Popular's shares have ranged in value from as little as $48.825 up to $81.4843. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BPOP.US volatility(beta: 0.84)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Popular's is 0.8399. This would suggest that Popular's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
