Is Wells Fargo-and-Company under- or over-valued?

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

Wells Fargo-and-Company's P/E ratio

Wells Fargo-and-Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 78x. In other words, Wells Fargo-and-Company shares trade at around 78x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Wells Fargo-and-Company's PEG ratio

Wells Fargo-and-Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.954. 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 Wells Fargo-and-Company'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 Wells Fargo-and-Company shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "WFC.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 38.4 million Wells Fargo-and-Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Wells Fargo-and-Company's "short interest". This figure is 3.8% up from 37.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Wells Fargo-and-Company shares can be evaluated.

Wells Fargo-and-Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Wells Fargo-and-Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wells Fargo-and-Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wells Fargo-and-Company shares traded daily (recently around 34.3 million). Wells Fargo-and-Company's SIR currently stands at 1.12. In other words for every 100,000 Wells Fargo-and-Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1120 shares are currently held short.

However Wells Fargo-and-Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Wells Fargo-and-Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Wells Fargo-and-Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Wells Fargo-and-Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wells Fargo-and-Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0093% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wells Fargo-and-Company shares, roughly 9 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 Wells Fargo-and-Company.

Wells Fargo-and-Company's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Wells Fargo-and-Company.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Wells Fargo-and-Company's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 34.31

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Wells Fargo-and-Company's overall score of 34.31 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 63rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Wells Fargo-and-Company is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Wells Fargo-and-Company's environmental score

Environmental score: 2.65/100

Wells Fargo-and-Company's environmental score of 2.65 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Wells Fargo-and-Company is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Wells Fargo-and-Company's social score

Social score: 15.06/100

Wells Fargo-and-Company's social score of 15.06 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Wells Fargo-and-Company is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Wells Fargo-and-Company's governance score

Governance score: 16.6/100

Wells Fargo-and-Company's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Wells Fargo-and-Company is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Wells Fargo-and-Company's controversy score

Controversy score: 5/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, Wells Fargo-and-Company scored a 5 out of 5 for controversy – the lowest score possible, reflecting that Wells Fargo-and-Company's public profile has been damaged by multiple incidents.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Total ESG score 34.31

Wells Fargo-and-Company share dividends

48%

Dividend payout ratio: 47.77% of net profits

Recently Wells Fargo-and-Company has paid out, on average, around 47.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wells Fargo-and-Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wells Fargo-and-Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

While Wells Fargo-and-Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Wells Fargo-and-Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Wells Fargo-and-Company's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Wells Fargo-and-Company's shares ever split?

Wells Fargo-and-Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 August 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Wells Fargo-and-Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Wells Fargo-and-Company shares which in turn could have impacted Wells Fargo-and-Company's share price.

Wells Fargo-and-Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Wells Fargo-and-Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.6651 up to $47.1132. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WFC.US volatility(beta: 1.27)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 Wells Fargo-and-Company's is 1.2726. This would suggest that Wells Fargo-and-Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
