Is AGCO Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

AGCO Corporation's P/E ratio

AGCO Corporation'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, AGCO Corporation shares trade at around 13x 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.

AGCO Corporation's PEG ratio

AGCO Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3148. 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 AGCO Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

AGCO Corporation's EBITDA

AGCO Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.2 billion.

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

Shorting AGCO Corporation shares

There are currently 1.2 million AGCO Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as AGCO Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 34.6% up from 924,130 last month.

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

AGCO Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AGCO Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AGCO Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AGCO Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 501681.85483871). AGCO Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.48. In other words for every 100,000 AGCO Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2480 shares are currently held short.

However AGCO Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AGCO Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable AGCO Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AGCO Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AGCO Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.02% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AGCO Corporation shares, roughly 20 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against AGCO Corporation.

AGCO Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 53.54% of net profits

Recently AGCO Corporation has paid out, on average, around 53.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AGCO Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AGCO Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.

AGCO Corporation'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.

AGCO Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AGCO Corporation's shares ever split?

AGCO Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 January 1996. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AGCO Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AGCO Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted AGCO Corporation's share price.

AGCO Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AGCO Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $69.5496 up to $155.4359. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AGCO.US volatility(beta: 1.33)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while AGCO Corporation's is 1.3281. This would suggest that AGCO Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
