Is VEON stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing VEON stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of VEON's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
VEON's P/E ratio
VEON's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, VEON shares trade at around 3x 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.
VEON's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a VEON's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$7.9 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||18.89%|
|Gross profit TTM||$5.9 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||5.74%|
|Return on equity TTM||26.53%|
|Market capitalisation||$1.4 billion|

VEON'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 VEON.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
VEON's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 56.57
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and VEON's overall score of 56.57 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 38th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like VEON 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.).
VEON's environmental score
Environmental score: 52.67/100
VEON's environmental score of 52.67 puts it squarely in the 28th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that VEON is doing better than many of its peers in terms of its environmental impact, and so perhaps exposed to a slightly lower level of risk.
VEON's social score
Social score: 55.46/100
VEON's social score of 55.46 puts it squarely in the 57th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that VEON is pretty average in terms of looking after its workforce and social impact.
VEON's governance score
Governance score: 65.15/100
VEON's governance score puts it squarely in the 34th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that VEON is impressive in terms of responsible leadership, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
VEON's controversy score
Controversy score: 4/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. VEON scored a 4 out of 5 for controversy – the second-lowest score possible, reflecting that VEON has a damaged public profile.
VEON share dividends
We're not expecting VEON to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have VEON's shares ever split?
VEON's shares were split on a 1:25 basis on 8 March 2023. So if you had owned 25 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your VEON shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for VEON shares which in turn could have impacted VEON's share price.
VEON share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, VEON's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.45 up to $21.48. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while VEON's is 1.5679. This would suggest that VEON's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
