Is it a good time to buy Raymond James Financial stock?

It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Raymond James Financial 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

Raymond James Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Raymond James Financial shares trade at around 15x 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

Raymond James Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0659. 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 Raymond James Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dividend yield: 1.01% of stock value

1.1%

Forward annual dividend yield: 1.06% of stock value

14.7%

Dividend payout ratio: 14.74% of net profits

Raymond James Financial has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 1.01% of its share value annually.

Raymond James Financial has paid out, on average, around 14.74% 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 Raymond James Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $1.04 per share.

Have Raymond James Financial's shares ever split?

Raymond James Financial's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 22 September 2021. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Raymond James Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Raymond James Financial's share price.
