Is Raymond James Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Raymond James Financial's P/E ratio

Raymond James Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Raymond James Financial shares trade at around 13x 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.

Raymond James Financial's PEG ratio

Raymond James Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8695. 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 Raymond James Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Raymond James Financial share dividends

17%

Dividend payout ratio: 16.94% of net profits

Recently Raymond James Financial has paid out, on average, around 16.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Raymond James Financial shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Raymond James Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

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

Have Raymond James Financial's shares ever split?

Raymond James Financial's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 22 September 2021. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Raymond James Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Raymond James Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Raymond James Financial's share price.

Raymond James Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Raymond James Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $81.2042 up to $117.0069. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RJF.US volatility(beta: 1.1)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 Raymond James Financial's is 1.098. This would suggest that Raymond James Financial'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).
