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 13x. In other words, State Street Corporation shares trade at around 13x 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.

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 1.1643. 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 State Street Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

State Street Corporation's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like State Street Corporation.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

State Street Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 22

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and State Street Corporation's overall score of 22 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 31st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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 environmental score

Environmental score: 0.56/100

State Street Corporation's environmental score of 0.56 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 terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

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's governance score

Governance score: 9.52/100

State Street Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that State Street Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

State Street Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. State Street Corporation scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that State Street Corporation has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

State Street Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 23.88% of net profits

Recently State Street Corporation has paid out, on average, around 23.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.51% 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 2.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In State Street Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.18 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 13 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have State Street Corporation's shares ever split?

State Street Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 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 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for State Street Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted State Street Corporation's share price.

State Street Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, State Street Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $67.3072 up to $104.87. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

STT.US volatility(beta: 1.61)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 State Street Corporation's is 1.6067. This would suggest that State Street Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
