Is Bendigo and Adelaide Bank under- or over-valued?

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

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's P/E ratio

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank shares trade at around 13x 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.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 72.19% of net profits

Recently Bendigo and Adelaide Bank has paid out, on average, around 72.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bendigo and Adelaide Bank shareholders could enjoy a 5.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.62 per share.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank'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.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 February 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's shares ever split?

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's shares were split on a 1.0117:1 basis on 11 August 2009. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 1.0117 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bendigo and Adelaide Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bendigo and Adelaide Bank shares which in turn could have impacted Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's share price.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.7972 up to $11.31. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BEN.AU volatility(beta: 1.14)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 Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's is 1.141. This would suggest that Bendigo and Adelaide Bank'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).
