Is Deutsche Bank under- or over-valued?

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

Deutsche Bank's P/E ratio

Deutsche 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, Deutsche 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.

Deutsche Bank's PEG ratio

Deutsche Bank's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.19. 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 Deutsche 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.

Shorting Deutsche Bank shares

There are currently 16.5 million Deutsche Bank shares held short by investors – that's known as Deutsche Bank's "short interest". This figure is 13.5% up from 14.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Deutsche Bank shares can be evaluated.

Deutsche Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Deutsche Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Deutsche Bank shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Deutsche Bank shares traded daily (recently around 3.0 million). Deutsche Bank's SIR currently stands at 5.51. In other words for every 100,000 Deutsche Bank shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5510 shares are currently held short.

However Deutsche Bank's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Deutsche Bank shares, or, against the total number of tradable Deutsche Bank shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Deutsche Bank's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Deutsche Bank shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0091% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Deutsche Bank shares, roughly 9 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Deutsche Bank.

Deutsche Bank'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 Deutsche Bank.

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

Deutsche Bank's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 33.55

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Deutsche Bank's overall score of 33.55 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 61st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Deutsche Bank's environmental score

Environmental score: 7.11/100

Deutsche Bank's environmental score of 7.11 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Deutsche Bank is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Deutsche Bank's social score

Social score: 15.48/100

Deutsche Bank's social score of 15.48 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Deutsche Bank is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Deutsche Bank's governance score

Governance score: 17.96/100

Deutsche Bank's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Deutsche Bank is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Deutsche Bank's controversy score

Controversy score: 4/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Deutsche Bank scored a 4 out of 5 for controversy – the second-lowest score possible, reflecting that Deutsche Bank has a damaged public profile.

Deutsche Bank share dividends

We're not expecting Deutsche Bank to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Deutsche Bank's shares ever split?

Deutsche Bank's shares were split on a 1048:1000 basis on 5 June 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1048 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Deutsche Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Deutsche Bank shares which in turn could have impacted Deutsche Bank's share price.

Deutsche Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Deutsche Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.83 up to $15.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DB.US volatility(beta: 1.37)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 Deutsche Bank's is 1.3725. This would suggest that Deutsche Bank's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
