  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. Complete an application with your personal and financial details, like your ID and tax file number. Fund your account with a bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
  3. Search for Sony. Find the share by name or ticker symbol: SNE. Research its history to confirm it's a solid investment against your financial goals.
  4. Purchase now or later. Buy today with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until Sony reaches your desired price. To spread out your risk, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying at consistent intervals and amounts.

Is Sony under- or over-valued?

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

Sony's P/E ratio

Sony's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Sony shares trade at around 14x recent earnings.

Sony's PEG ratio

Sony's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9414. 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 Sony's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Sony's EBITDA

Sony's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$11.7 billion (£9.1 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Sony's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Sony share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 3% of net profits

Recently Sony has paid out, on average, around 3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sony shareholders could enjoy a 0.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sony's case, that would currently equate to about $0.455 per share.

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

Sony's most recent dividend payout was on 7 December 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sony's shares ever split?

Sony's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 May 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sony shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sony shares which in turn could have impacted Sony's share price.

Sony share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sony's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$0 up to US$0. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SNE.US volatility(beta: 0.81)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (N/A average) beta is 1, while Sony's is 0.8056. This would suggest that Sony's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
