Is JPMorgan Chase under- or over-valued?

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

JPMorgan Chase's P/E ratio

JPMorgan Chase's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, JPMorgan Chase shares trade at around 13x 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.

JPMorgan Chase's PEG ratio

JPMorgan Chase's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.2251. 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 JPMorgan Chase's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting JPMorgan Chase shares

There are currently 20.3 million JPMorgan Chase shares held short by investors – that's known as JPMorgan Chase's "short interest". This figure is 8.9% down from 22.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting JPMorgan Chase shares can be evaluated.

JPMorgan Chase's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

JPMorgan Chase's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of JPMorgan Chase shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of JPMorgan Chase shares traded daily (recently around 18.5 million). JPMorgan Chase's SIR currently stands at 1.1. In other words for every 100,000 JPMorgan Chase shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1100 shares are currently held short.

However JPMorgan Chase's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of JPMorgan Chase shares, or, against the total number of tradable JPMorgan Chase shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case JPMorgan Chase's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 JPMorgan Chase shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0067% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable JPMorgan Chase shares, roughly 7 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 JPMorgan Chase.

JPMorgan Chase'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 JPMorgan Chase.

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

JPMorgan Chase's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 24.51

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and JPMorgan Chase's overall score of 24.51 (as at 09/30/2020) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 29th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like JPMorgan Chase 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.).

JPMorgan Chase's environmental score

Environmental score: 1.16/100

JPMorgan Chase's environmental score of 1.16 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that JPMorgan Chase is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

JPMorgan Chase's social score

Social score: 12.45/100

JPMorgan Chase's social score of 12.45 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that JPMorgan Chase is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

JPMorgan Chase's governance score

Governance score: 7.4/100

JPMorgan Chase's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that JPMorgan Chase is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

JPMorgan Chase's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. JPMorgan Chase scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that JPMorgan Chase hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

JPMorgan Chase share dividends

35%

Dividend payout ratio: 34.85% of net profits

Recently JPMorgan Chase has paid out, on average, around 34.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), JPMorgan Chase shareholders could enjoy a 3.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In JPMorgan Chase's case, that would currently equate to about $3.6 per share.

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

JPMorgan Chase's most recent dividend payout was on 30 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have JPMorgan Chase's shares ever split?

JPMorgan Chase's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 11 June 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your JPMorgan Chase shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for JPMorgan Chase shares which in turn could have impacted JPMorgan Chase's share price.

JPMorgan Chase share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, JPMorgan Chase's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$76.91 up to US$141.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

JPM.US volatility(beta: 1.13)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 JPMorgan Chase's is 1.1296. This would suggest that JPMorgan Chase's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
