Since the stock market crash that started in February 2020, Tencent's share price has had significant positive movement.
Its last market close was $63.99, which is 19.57% up on its pre-crash value of $51.47 and 56.84% up on the lowest point reached during the March 2020 crash when the shares fell as low as $40.8.

Is Tencent 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.
Tencent'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, Tencent shares trade at around 21x recent earnings.
Tencent's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2649. 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 Tencent's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Tencent's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $183.4 billion (£133.6 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Tencent's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Tencent share dividends
Dividend yield: 2.14% of stock value
Forward annual dividend yield: 0.33% of stock value
Dividend payout ratio: 6.77% of net profits
Tencent has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 2.14% of its share value annually.
Tencent has paid out, on average, around 6.77% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.33% 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 0.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tencent's case, that would currently equate to about $1.347 per share.
While Tencent's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that the company is investing more in its future growth.
Tencent's most recent dividend payout was on 21 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Tencent's shares ever split?
Tencent's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 19 May 2014. 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 Tencent shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tencent shares which in turn could have impacted Tencent's share price.
Share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Tencent's shares have ranged in value from as little as $53.47 up to $99.1348. 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 (PINK average) beta is 1, while Tencent's is 0.5357. This would suggest that Tencent's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
