Is AAON under- or over-valued?

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

AAON's P/E ratio

AAON's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 52x. In other words, AAON shares trade at around 52x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

AAON's PEG ratio

AAON's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.87. 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 AAON's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


AAON's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$125.4 million.

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

Shorting AAON shares

There are currently 3.4 million AAON shares held short by investors – that's known as AAON's "short interest". This figure is 4.6% down from 3.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AAON shares can be evaluated.

AAON's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AAON's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AAON shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AAON shares traded daily (recently around 213941.97844008). AAON's SIR currently stands at 15.77. In other words for every 100,000 AAON shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15770 shares are currently held short.

However AAON's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AAON shares, or, against the total number of tradable AAON shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AAON's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AAON shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0969% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AAON shares, roughly 97 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against AAON.

AAON share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 33.63% of net profits

Recently AAON has paid out, on average, around 33.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AAON shareholders could enjoy a 0.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AAON's case, that would currently equate to about $0.35 per share.

While AAON's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that AAON may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

AAON's most recent dividend payout was on 18 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AAON's shares ever split?

AAON's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 17 July 2014. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AAON shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AAON shares which in turn could have impacted AAON's share price.

AAON share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AAON's shares have ranged in value from as little as $40.2244 up to $81.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AAON.US volatility(beta: 0.64)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while AAON's is 0.6377. This would suggest that AAON's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
