Is Alamo Group under- or over-valued?

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

Alamo Group's P/E ratio

Alamo Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Alamo Group shares trade at around 31x 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.

Alamo Group's PEG ratio

Alamo Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.89. 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 Alamo 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.

Alamo Group's EBITDA

Alamo Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $144.2 million.

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

Shorting Alamo Group shares

There are currently 124,624 Alamo Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Alamo Group's "short interest". This figure is 10.2% down from 138,709 last month.

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

Alamo Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Alamo Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Alamo Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Alamo Group shares traded daily (recently around 33501.075268817). Alamo Group's SIR currently stands at 3.72. In other words for every 100,000 Alamo Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3720 shares are currently held short.

However Alamo Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Alamo Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Alamo Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Alamo Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Alamo Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0107% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Alamo Group shares, roughly 11 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 Alamo Group.

Alamo Group share dividends

10%

Dividend payout ratio: 10.19% of net profits

Recently Alamo Group has paid out, on average, around 10.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Alamo Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alamo Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.53 per share.

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

Alamo Group's most recent dividend payout was on 28 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Alamo Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Alamo Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $94.1178 up to $165.98. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ALG.US volatility(beta: 0.96)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 Alamo Group's is 0.963. This would suggest that Alamo Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
