Is SBI under- or over-valued?

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

SBI's P/E ratio

SBI's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, SBI shares trade at around 16x recent earnings.

SBI'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 SBI.

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

SBI's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 38.72

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and SBI's overall score of 38.72 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 72nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

SBI's environmental score

Environmental score: 6.86/100

SBI's environmental score of 6.86 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that SBI is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

SBI's social score

Social score: 17.77/100

SBI's social score of 17.77 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that SBI is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

SBI's governance score

Governance score: 18.09/100

SBI's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that SBI is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

SBI's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. SBI scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that SBI hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

SBI share dividends

14%

Dividend payout ratio: 14.27% of net profits

Recently SBI has paid out, on average, around 14.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SBI shareholders could enjoy a 0.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SBI's case, that would currently equate to about INR4 per share.

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

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have SBI's shares ever split?

SBI's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 19 November 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SBI shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SBI shares which in turn could have impacted SBI's share price.

SBI share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SBI's shares have ranged in value from as little as INR173.8978 up to INR471.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SBIN.NSE volatility(beta: 1)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NSE average) beta is 1, while SBI's is 1.0013. This would suggest that SBI'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).
