Is Toyota Motor Corporation 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

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 15x. In other words, Toyota Motor Corporation 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.

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.

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 51.1039. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value 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 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.


Toyota Motor Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $3,513.4 billion (£2,499.1 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Toyota Motor Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.

Toyota Motor Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 19.91% of net profits

Recently Toyota Motor Corporation has paid out, on average, around 19.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.8% 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 2.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Toyota Motor Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $225 per share.

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

Toyota Motor Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 6 December 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 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 24 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.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Toyota Motor Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $113.4819 up to $163.3699. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

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