Is CaixaBank 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

CaixaBank's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, CaixaBank shares trade at around 4x recent earnings.

However, CaixaBank's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the banks-regional industry or those of similar companies.

CaixaBank share dividends

1.1%

Dividend yield: 1.06% of stock value

1.1%

Forward annual dividend yield: 1.06% of stock value

12.7%

Dividend payout ratio: 12.68% of net profits

CaixaBank has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 1.06% of its share value annually.

CaixaBank has paid out, on average, around 12.68% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.06% 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 1.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CaixaBank's case, that would currently equate to about $0.027 per share.

While CaixaBank's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that the company is investing more in its future growth.

CaixaBank's most recent dividend payout was on 8 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

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

Have CaixaBank's shares ever split?

CaixaBank's shares were split on a 10159:1000 basis on 3 March 2016. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10159 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CaixaBank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CaixaBank shares which in turn could have impacted CaixaBank's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CaixaBank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.7775 up to $1.19. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CAIXY.US volatility(beta: 1.6)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while CaixaBank's is 1.5965. This would suggest that CaixaBank's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

To put CaixaBank's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
