Is State Street Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing State Street Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of State Street Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
State Street Corporation's P/E ratio
State Street Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, State Street Corporation shares trade at around 12x 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.
State Street Corporation's PEG ratio
State Street Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5702. 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 State Street Corporation'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 State Street Corporation shares
There are currently 4.8 million State Street Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as State Street Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% down from 5.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting State Street Corporation shares can be evaluated.
State Street Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
State Street Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of State Street Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of State Street Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). State Street Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.34. In other words for every 100,000 State Street Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2340 shares are currently held short.
However State Street Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of State Street Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable State Street Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case State Street Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 State Street Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0147% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable State Street Corporation shares, roughly 15 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 State Street Corporation.

State Street Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 32.05% of net profits
Recently State Street Corporation has paid out, on average, around 32.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), State Street Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In State Street Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.08 per share.
While State Street Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that State Street Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
State Street Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 11 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have State Street Corporation's shares ever split?
State Street Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 May 2001. 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 State Street Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for State Street Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted State Street Corporation's share price.
State Street Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, State Street Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$55.3994 up to US$89.28. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while State Street Corporation's is 1.5978. This would suggest that State Street Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
