Is SAP under- or over-valued?
Valuing SAP stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SAP's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SAP's P/E ratio
SAP's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, SAP shares trade at around 21x 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.
SAP's PEG ratio
SAP's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9398. 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 SAP's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
SAP's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SAP's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$28.6 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||18.54%|
|Gross profit TTM||$20.1 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||4.63%|
|Return on equity TTM||12.75%|
|Market capitalisation||$110 billion|
TTM: trailing 12 months
SAP share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 38.36% of net profits
Recently SAP has paid out, on average, around 38.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SAP shareholders could enjoy a 2.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SAP's case, that would currently equate to about $1.95 per share.
While SAP's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that SAP may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
SAP's most recent dividend payout was on 31 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have SAP's shares ever split?
SAP's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 28 July 1998. 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 SAP shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SAP shares which in turn could have impacted SAP's share price.
SAP share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, SAP's shares have ranged in value from as little as $92.94 up to $151.48. 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 SAP's is 1.0279. This would suggest that SAP'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).
