Is The Toronto-Dominion Bank under- or over-valued?

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

The Toronto-Dominion Bank's P/E ratio

The Toronto-Dominion Bank'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, The Toronto-Dominion Bank 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.

The Toronto-Dominion Bank's PEG ratio

The Toronto-Dominion Bank's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.21. 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 The Toronto-Dominion Bank's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 6.0 million The Toronto-Dominion Bank shares held short by investors – that's known as The Toronto-Dominion Bank's "short interest". This figure is 20.6% down from 7.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting The Toronto-Dominion Bank shares can be evaluated.

The Toronto-Dominion Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The Toronto-Dominion Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Toronto-Dominion Bank shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Toronto-Dominion Bank shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). The Toronto-Dominion Bank's SIR currently stands at 3.29. In other words for every 100,000 The Toronto-Dominion Bank shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3290 shares are currently held short.

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

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against The Toronto-Dominion Bank.

The Toronto-Dominion Bank share dividends

57%

Dividend payout ratio: 57.03% of net profits

Recently The Toronto-Dominion Bank has paid out, on average, around 57.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Toronto-Dominion Bank shareholders could enjoy a 3.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Toronto-Dominion Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $3.16 per share.

The Toronto-Dominion Bank's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Have The Toronto-Dominion Bank's shares ever split?

The Toronto-Dominion Bank's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 February 2014. 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 The Toronto-Dominion Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The Toronto-Dominion Bank shares which in turn could have impacted The Toronto-Dominion Bank's share price.

The Toronto-Dominion Bank share price volatility
