Is Brewin Dolphin 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.

P/E ratio

Brewin Dolphin's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Brewin Dolphin shares trade at around 19x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71).

However, Brewin Dolphin's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the asset management industry or those of similar companies.

PEG ratio

Brewin Dolphin's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.25. 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 Brewin Dolphin'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 Brewin Dolphin's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.


Brewin Dolphin's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £91.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Brewin Dolphin's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.

Brewin Dolphin share dividends


Dividend yield: 4.6% of stock value


Forward annual dividend yield: 4.6% of stock value


Dividend payout ratio: 87.22% of net profits

Brewin Dolphin has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 4.60% of its share value annually.

Brewin Dolphin has paid out, on average, around 87.22% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.6% 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 4.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brewin Dolphin's case, that would currently equate to about 15.7p per share.

Brewin Dolphin'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.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Brewin Dolphin's dividend yield is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

Have Brewin Dolphin's shares ever split?

Brewin Dolphin's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 10 April 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Brewin Dolphin shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Brewin Dolphin shares which in turn could have impacted Brewin Dolphin's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Brewin Dolphin's shares have ranged in value from as little as 286.8758p up to 411.8774p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BRW.LSE volatility(beta: 1.1)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 Brewin Dolphin's is 1.1028. This would suggest that Brewin Dolphin'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 Brewin Dolphin's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
