Is Bank Of Georgia Group under- or over-valued?

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

Bank Of Georgia Group's P/E ratio

Bank Of Georgia Group'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, Bank Of Georgia Group shares trade at around 3x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Bank Of Georgia Group share dividends

8%

Dividend payout ratio: 7.68% of net profits

Recently Bank Of Georgia Group has paid out, on average, around 7.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bank Of Georgia Group shareholders could enjoy a 6.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bank Of Georgia Group's case, that would currently equate to about 0p per share.

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

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Bank Of Georgia Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bank Of Georgia Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 915.5699p up to 1732p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BGEO.LSE volatility(beta: 1.45)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while Bank Of Georgia Group's is 1.4487. This would suggest that Bank Of Georgia Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
