How to buy shares in Nintendo

  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. Complete an application with your personal and financial details, like your ID and tax file number. Fund your account with a bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
  3. Search for Nintendo. Find the share by name or ticker symbol: NTDOY. Research its history to confirm it's a solid investment against your financial goals.
  4. Purchase now or later. Buy today with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until Nintendo reaches your desired price. To spread out your risk, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying at consistent intervals and amounts.
  5. Decide on how many to buy. At last close price of US$11.79, weigh your budget against a diversified portfolio that can minimise risk through the market's ups and downs. You may be able to buy a fractional share of Nintendo, depending on your broker.

Is Nintendo under- or over-valued?

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

Nintendo's P/E ratio

Nintendo's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Nintendo shares trade at around 17x recent earnings.

Nintendo's PEG ratio

Nintendo's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 13.3514. 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 Nintendo's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Nintendo's EBITDA

Nintendo's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$580.4 billion (£462.4 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Nintendo's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Nintendo share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 12.57% of net profits

Recently Nintendo has paid out, on average, around 12.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nintendo shareholders could enjoy a 2.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nintendo's case, that would currently equate to about $203 per share.

While Nintendo's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Nintendo is investing more in its future growth.

Nintendo's most recent dividend payout was on 16 July 2018. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Nintendo's shares ever split?

Nintendo's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 4 October 2022. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Nintendo shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nintendo shares which in turn could have impacted Nintendo's share price.

Nintendo share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nintendo's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$9.26 up to US$11.99. 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 (PINK average) beta is 1, while Nintendo's is 0.351. This would suggest that Nintendo's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
