Is State Street Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

State Street Corporation's P/E ratio

State Street 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, State Street Corporation stocks trade at around 14x 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.

State Street Corporation's PEG ratio

State Street Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5027. 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 State Street 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.

How to short and sell State Street Corporation stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "STT.US"

There are currently 3.4 million State Street Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as State Street Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 28.9% down from 4.8 million last month.

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

State Street Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

State Street Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of State Street Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of State Street Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). State Street Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.55. In other words for every 100,000 State Street Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1550 stocks are currently held short.

However State Street Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of State Street Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable State Street Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case State Street Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 State Street Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0106% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable State Street Corporation stocks, roughly 11 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 State Street Corporation.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like State Street Corporation is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

State Street Corporation's social score

Social score: 12.93/100

State Street Corporation's social score of 12.93 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that State Street Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

State Street Corporation stock dividends

25%

Dividend payout ratio: 24.59% of net profits

Recently State Street Corporation has paid out, on average, around 24.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), State Street Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In State Street Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.08 per share.

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

State Street Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 11 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 29 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have State Street Corporation stocks ever split?

State Street Corporation stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 May 2001. 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 State Street Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for State Street Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted State Street Corporation's stock price.

State Street Corporation stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, State Street Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $55.0489 up to $88.7152. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

STT.US volatility(beta: 1.58)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while State Street Corporation's is 1.5778. This would suggest that State Street Corporation's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
