Is Credit Suisse Group 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

Credit Suisse Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Credit Suisse Group shares trade at around 21x 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.

PEG ratio

Credit Suisse Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4105. A PEG ratio below 1 can be interpreted as meaning the shares are not overvalued given the current rate of growth.

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

How to short and sell Credit Suisse Group shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "CS.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 12.2 million Credit Suisse Group shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 18.8% down from 15.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Credit Suisse Group shares can be evaluated.

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Credit Suisse Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Credit Suisse Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Credit Suisse Group shares traded daily (recently around 7.8 million). Credit Suisse Group's SIR currently stands at 1.57. In other words for every 100,000 Credit Suisse Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1570 shares are currently held short.

However Credit Suisse Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Credit Suisse Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Credit Suisse Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Credit Suisse Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Credit Suisse Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0058% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Credit Suisse Group shares, roughly 6 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Credit Suisse Group.

Credit Suisse Group share dividends

0.9%

Dividend yield: 0.94% of stock value

1.0%

Forward annual dividend yield: 1.02% of stock value

63.6%

Dividend payout ratio: 63.56% of net profits

Credit Suisse Group has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 0.94% of its share value annually.

Credit Suisse Group has paid out, on average, around 63.56% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.02% 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 1.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Credit Suisse Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.

Credit Suisse Group'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.

Credit Suisse Group's most recent dividend payout was on 16 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Credit Suisse Group's shares ever split?

Credit Suisse Group's shares were split on a 1024:1000 basis on 30 April 2013. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1024 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Credit Suisse Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Credit Suisse Group shares which in turn could have impacted Credit Suisse Group's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Credit Suisse Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.0819 up to $14.7978. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CS.US volatility(beta: 1.64)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Credit Suisse Group's is 1.644. This would suggest that Credit Suisse Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
