Is Relx PLC ADR stock undervalued or overvalued?

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Relx PLC ADR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Relx PLC ADR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 58.38% of net profits

Recently Relx PLC ADR has paid out, on average, around 58.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.6% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Relx PLC ADR shareholders could enjoy a 1.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Relx PLC ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.588 per share.

Relx PLC ADR's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Relx PLC ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 17 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Relx PLC ADR's shares ever split?

Relx PLC ADR's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 30 June 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Relx PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Relx PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted Relx PLC ADR's share price.
