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 9x. In other words, JPMorgan Chase shares trade at around 9x 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 1.1661. 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.
JPMorgan Chase share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, JPMorgan Chase's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$120.4296 up to US$158.2126. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while JPMorgan Chase's is 1.102. 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).

JPMorgan Chase share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 23.33% of net profits
Recently JPMorgan Chase has paid out, on average, around 23.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.74% 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 2.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In JPMorgan Chase's case, that would currently equate to about $4.05 per share.
While JPMorgan Chase's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that JPMorgan Chase is investing more in its future growth.
JPMorgan Chase's most recent dividend payout was on 31 October 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 October 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
