Is Bank of Queensland under- or over-valued?

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

Bank of Queensland's P/E ratio

Bank of Queensland's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Bank of Queensland shares trade at around 15x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Bank of Queensland's PEG ratio

Bank of Queensland's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.09. 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 Bank of Queensland's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Have Bank of Queensland's shares ever split?

Bank of Queensland's shares were split on a 1.0116:1 basis on 20 August 2009. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 1.0116 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bank of Queensland shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bank of Queensland shares which in turn could have impacted Bank of Queensland's share price.

Bank of Queensland share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bank of Queensland's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.9284 up to $6.2505. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BOQ.AU volatility(beta: 0.97)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Bank of Queensland's is 0.968. This would suggest that Bank of Queensland's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
