Is Toyota Motor Corporation under- or over-valued?

Valuing Toyota Motor Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Toyota Motor Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Toyota Motor Corporation's P/E ratio

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

However, Toyota Motor Corporation's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the auto manufacturers industry or those of similar companies.

Toyota Motor Corporation's PEG ratio

Toyota Motor Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.1324. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Toyota Motor Corporation'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 Toyota Motor Corporation's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

How to short and sell Toyota Motor Corporation shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "TM.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 1.0 million Toyota Motor Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Toyota Motor Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 34.1% up from 782,008 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Toyota Motor Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Toyota Motor Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Toyota Motor Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Toyota Motor Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Toyota Motor Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 170562.43902439). Toyota Motor Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.15. In other words for every 100,000 Toyota Motor Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6150 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Toyota Motor Corporation's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Toyota Motor Corporation.

Toyota Motor Corporation share dividends

22%

Dividend payout ratio: 22.01% of net profits

Recently Toyota Motor Corporation has paid out, on average, around 22.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Toyota Motor Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Toyota Motor Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $4.05 per share.

While Toyota Motor Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Toyota Motor Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Toyota Motor Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 December 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Toyota Motor Corporation's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

Have Toyota Motor Corporation's shares ever split?

Toyota Motor Corporation's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 25 June 1991. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Toyota Motor Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Toyota Motor Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Toyota Motor Corporation's share price.

Toyota Motor Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Toyota Motor Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $108.01 up to $145.41. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TM.US volatility(beta: 0.8)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 Toyota Motor Corporation's is 0.795. This would suggest that Toyota Motor Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

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