Is Sony Group Corporation under- or over-valued?

Sony Group Corporation's P/E ratio

Sony Group Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Sony Group Corporation stocks trade at around 14x recent earnings.

Sony Group Corporation's PEG ratio

Sony Group Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9414. 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 Sony Group Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Sony Group Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$11.7 billion.

There are currently 2.1 million Sony Group Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as Sony Group Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 14.6% down from 2.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sony Group Corporation stocks can be evaluated.

Sony Group Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sony Group Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sony Group Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sony Group Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Sony Group Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.93. In other words for every 100,000 Sony Group Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1930 stocks are currently held short.

However Sony Group Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sony Group Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Sony Group Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sony Group Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Sony Group Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 0 stocks are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Sony Group Corporation stocks, roughly 0 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 Sony Group Corporation.

Sony Group Corporation stock dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 3% of net profits

Recently Sony Group Corporation has paid out, on average, around 3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sony Group Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sony Group Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.455 per share.

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

Sony Group Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 December 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 27 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sony Group Corporation stocks ever split?

Sony Group Corporation stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 May 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sony Group Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Sony Group Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted Sony Group Corporation's stock price.

Sony Group Corporation stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sony Group Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $72.45 up to $118.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SNE.US volatility(beta: 0.81)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (N/A average) beta is 1, while Sony Group Corporation's is 0.8056. This would suggest that Sony Group Corporation's stocks are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
