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 15x. In other words, Raymond James Financial stocks trade at around 15x 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 stocks 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 0.9409. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks 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 stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 1.8 million Raymond James Financial stocks held short by investors – that's known as Raymond James Financial's "short interest". This figure is 26.4% down from 2.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Raymond James Financial stocks can be evaluated.

Raymond James Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Raymond James Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Raymond James Financial stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Raymond James Financial stocks traded daily (recently around 594438.04713805). Raymond James Financial's SIR currently stands at 2.97. In other words for every 100,000 Raymond James Financial stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2970 stocks are currently held short.

However Raymond James Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Raymond James Financial stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Raymond James Financial stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Raymond James Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Raymond James Financial stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0144% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Raymond James Financial stocks, roughly 14 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Raymond James Financial.

24%

Dividend payout ratio: 23.58% of net profits

Recently Raymond James Financial has paid out, on average, around 23.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.19% 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 1.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Raymond James Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $1.54 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 stocks ever split?

Raymond James Financial stocks were split on a 3:2 basis on 22 March 2006. 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 stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Raymond James Financial stocks which in turn could have impacted Raymond James Financial's stock price.

Raymond James Financial stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Raymond James Financial's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $66.6264 up to $138.1453. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RJF.US volatility(beta: 1.24)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

This would suggest that Raymond James Financial's stocks 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).
