Is YG Entertainment under- or over-valued?

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

YG Entertainment's P/E ratio

YG Entertainment's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, YG Entertainment shares trade at around 33x recent earnings.

YG Entertainment's EBITDA

YG Entertainment's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is KRW₩111.3 billion (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a YG Entertainment's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

YG Entertainment share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 6.47% of net profits

Recently YG Entertainment has paid out, on average, around 6.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), YG Entertainment shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In YG Entertainment's case, that would currently equate to about ₩N/A per share.

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

Have YG Entertainment's shares ever split?

YG Entertainment's shares were split on a 1.3:1 basis on 2 May 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 1.3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your YG Entertainment shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 23.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for YG Entertainment shares which in turn could have impacted YG Entertainment's share price.

YG Entertainment share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, YG Entertainment's shares have ranged in value from as little as KRW₩41567.7778 up to KRW₩97000. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

122870.KQ volatility(beta: 0.94)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (KQ average) beta is 1, while YG Entertainment's is 0.937. This would suggest that YG Entertainment's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
