Is Affiliated Managers Group under- or over-valued?

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Affiliated Managers Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Affiliated Managers Group shares which in turn could have impacted Affiliated Managers Group's share price.

Affiliated Managers Group share price volatility
