Is AllianceBernstein Holding L-P under- or over-valued?

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

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's P/E ratio

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares trade at around 16x 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.

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's PEG ratio

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.3877. 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 AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares

There are currently 1.3 million AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares held short by investors – that's known as AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% down from 1.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares can be evaluated.

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares traded daily (recently around 214629.31323283). AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's SIR currently stands at 5.97. In other words for every 100,000 AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5970 shares are currently held short.

However AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares, or, against the total number of tradable AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0134% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares, roughly 13 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against AllianceBernstein Holding L-P.

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.25% of net profits

Recently AllianceBernstein Holding L-P has paid out, on average, around 1.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shareholders could enjoy a 6.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's case, that would currently equate to about $3.08 per share.

While AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that AllianceBernstein Holding L-P is investing more in its future growth.

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's most recent dividend payout was on 26 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's shares ever split?

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 April 1998. 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 AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares which in turn could have impacted AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's share price.

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.6252 up to $48.28. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AB.US volatility(beta: 1.42)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 AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's is 1.4168. This would suggest that AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
