Is Allegion under- or over-valued?

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

Allegion's P/E ratio

Allegion'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, Allegion 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.

Allegion's PEG ratio

Allegion's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.4873. 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 Allegion's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Allegion's EBITDA

Allegion's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $649.8 million.

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

Shorting Allegion shares

There are currently 1.0 million Allegion shares held short by investors – that's known as Allegion's "short interest". This figure is 8% down from 1.1 million last month.

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

Allegion's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Allegion's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Allegion shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Allegion shares traded daily (recently around 571175.28089888). Allegion's SIR currently stands at 1.78. In other words for every 100,000 Allegion shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1780 shares are currently held short.

However Allegion's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Allegion shares, or, against the total number of tradable Allegion shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Allegion's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Allegion shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0114% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Allegion 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 Allegion.

Allegion share dividends

26%

Dividend payout ratio: 25.76% of net profits

Recently Allegion has paid out, on average, around 25.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Allegion shareholders could enjoy a 1.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Allegion's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.

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

Allegion's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Allegion share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Allegion's shares have ranged in value from as little as $93.2068 up to $144.3832. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ALLE.US volatility(beta: 1.19)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 Allegion's is 1.194. This would suggest that Allegion's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
