Is TRowe Price Group under- or over-valued?

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

TRowe Price Group's P/E ratio

TRowe Price Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, TRowe Price Group shares trade at around 16x 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.

TRowe Price Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.8949. 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 TRowe Price Group'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 TRowe Price Group shares

There are currently 5.0 million TRowe Price Group shares held short by investors – that's known as TRowe Price Group's "short interest". This figure is 1.6% up from 4.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting TRowe Price Group shares can be evaluated.

TRowe Price Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However TRowe Price Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TRowe Price Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable TRowe Price Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TRowe Price Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TRowe Price Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0221% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TRowe Price Group shares, roughly 22 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 TRowe Price Group.

TRowe Price Group share dividends

56%

Dividend payout ratio: 56.42% of net profits

Recently TRowe Price Group has paid out, on average, around 56.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TRowe Price Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TRowe Price Group's case, that would currently equate to about $3.78 per share.

TRowe Price Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Have TRowe Price Group's shares ever split?

TRowe Price Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 June 2006. 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 TRowe Price Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for TRowe Price Group shares which in turn could have impacted TRowe Price Group's share price.

This would suggest that TRowe Price Group'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).
