Is BNY Mellon under- or over-valued?
Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value.
BNY Mellon'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, BNY Mellon shares trade at around 16x 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.
However, BNY Mellon's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the asset management industry or those of similar companies.
BNY Mellon's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2939. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into BNY Mellon's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
However, it's sensible to consider BNY Mellon's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

BNY Mellon share dividends
Dividend yield: 2.14% of stock value
Forward annual dividend yield: 2.14% of stock value
Dividend payout ratio: 31.71% of net profits
BNY Mellon has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 2.14% of its share value annually.
BNY Mellon has paid out, on average, around 31.71% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 2.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BNY Mellon's case, that would currently equate to about $1.27 per share.
While BNY Mellon's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that it may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
BNY Mellon's most recent dividend payout was on 12 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
BNY Mellon's dividend yield is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
- BlackRock (BLK.US): 1.95% (1.95% forward annual dividend yield)
- The Goldman Sachs Group (GS.US): 2.30% (2.3% forward annual dividend yield)
- Deutsche Bank Aktiengesellschaft (DB.US): 0.98% (1.92% forward annual dividend yield)
Have BNY Mellon's shares ever split?
BNY Mellon's shares were split on a 9434:10000 basis on 2 July 2007. So if you had owned 10000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 9434 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BNY Mellon shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 6% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for BNY Mellon shares which in turn could have impacted BNY Mellon's share price.
Share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, BNY Mellon's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.5381 up to $64.53. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while BNY Mellon's is 1.1566. This would suggest that BNY Mellon'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).
To put BNY Mellon's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
- BlackRock (BLK.US): 1.1926
- The Goldman Sachs Group (GS.US): 1.4962
- Deutsche Bank Aktiengesellschaft (DB.US): 1.3905
