  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.

Is Toyota under- or over-valued?

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

Toyota's P/E ratio

Toyota's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Toyota shares trade at around 9x 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.

Toyota's PEG ratio

Toyota's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.5023. 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 Toyota's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Toyota's EBITDA

Toyota's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$7,440 billion (£5,853 billion).

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

Toyota share dividends

10%

Dividend payout ratio: 10.11% of net profits

Recently Toyota has paid out, on average, around 10.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.82% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Toyota shareholders could enjoy a 1.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Toyota's case, that would currently equate to about $75 per share.

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

Toyota's most recent dividend payout was on 3 December 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Toyota's shares ever split?

Toyota's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 24 June 1991. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Toyota shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Toyota shares which in turn could have impacted Toyota's share price.

Toyota share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Toyota's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$133.6612 up to US$255.23. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TM.US volatility(beta: 0.51)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Toyota's is 0.505. This would suggest that Toyota's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
