Is Aggreko under- or over-valued?

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

Aggreko's P/E ratio

Aggreko's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Aggreko shares trade at around 8x recent earnings.

TTM: trailing 12 months

Aggreko share dividends

53%

Dividend payout ratio: 53.49% of net profits

Recently Aggreko has paid out, on average, around 53.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Aggreko shareholders could enjoy a 3.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Aggreko's case, that would currently equate to about $0.18 per share.

Aggreko'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.

Aggreko's most recent dividend payout was on 1 October 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Aggreko's shares ever split?

Aggreko's shares were split on a 9938:10000 basis on 28 May 2014. So if you had owned 10000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 9938 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Aggreko shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.6% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aggreko shares which in turn could have impacted Aggreko's share price.

Aggreko share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Aggreko's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.4 up to $11.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ARGKF.US volatility(beta: 0.91)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while Aggreko's is 0.9127. This would suggest that Aggreko's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
