Is Yum! Brands under- or over-valued?

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

Yum! Brands's P/E ratio

Yum! Brands's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Yum! Brands shares trade at around 21x 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.

Yum! Brands's PEG ratio

Yum! Brands's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1319. 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 Yum! Brands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Yum! Brands's EBITDA

Yum! Brands'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 Yum! Brands.

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

Yum! Brands's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 16.14

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Yum! Brands's overall score of 16.14 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 13rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Yum! Brands 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.).

Yum! Brands's environmental score

Environmental score: 0.16/100

Yum! Brands's social score

Social score: 8.54/100

Yum! Brands's governance score

Governance score: 1.95/100

Yum! Brands share dividends

47%

Dividend payout ratio: 46.52% of net profits

Recently Yum! Brands has paid out, on average, around 46.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Yum! Brands shareholders could enjoy a 2.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Yum! Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $2.07 per share.

While Yum! Brands's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Yum! Brands may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Yum! Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 11 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Yum! Brands's shares ever split?

Yum! Brands's shares were split on a 1391:1000 basis on 1 November 2016. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1391 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Yum! Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 28.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Yum! Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Yum! Brands's share price.

Yum! Brands share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Yum! Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $108.55 up to $139.2038. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

YUM.US volatility(beta: 1.1)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 Yum! Brands's is 1.0966. This would suggest that Yum! Brands's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
