Stocks similar to Bunge
Is Bunge under- or over-valued?
Valuing Bunge stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Bunge's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Bunge's P/E ratio
Bunge's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Bunge shares trade at around 6x 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.
Bunge's PEG ratio
Bunge's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7053. 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 Bunge's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Bunge's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$2.7 billion (£2 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Bunge's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Bunge share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 16.59% of net profits
Recently Bunge has paid out, on average, around 16.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bunge shareholders could enjoy a 2.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bunge's case, that would currently equate to about $2.05 per share.
While Bunge's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Bunge is investing more in its future growth.
Bunge's most recent dividend payout was on 1 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
