Is Shell stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Shell share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.98% of net profits

Recently Shell has paid out, on average, around 21.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Shell shareholders could enjoy a 3.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Shell's case, that would currently equate to about $1.075 per share.

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

Shell's most recent dividend payout was on 26 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Shell's shares ever split?

Shell's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 30 June 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Shell shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Shell shares which in turn could have impacted Shell's share price.

Shell share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Shell's shares have ranged in value from as little as $43.2629 up to $62.1367. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SHEL.US volatility(beta: 0.63)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 Shell's is 0.6306. This would suggest that Shell's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
