Is WPP PLC ADR stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

WPP PLC ADR's P/E ratio

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.


WPP PLC ADR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.609. 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 WPP 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.


WPP PLC ADR's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $788.4 million.

Dividend payout ratio: 8.16% of net profits

Recently WPP PLC ADR has paid out, on average, around 8.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), WPP PLC ADR shareholders could enjoy a 5.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WPP PLC ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.394 per share.

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

Have WPP PLC ADR's shares ever split?

WPP PLC ADR's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 November 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your WPP PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for WPP PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted WPP PLC ADR's share price.

WPP PLC ADR share price volatility
