Valuing Allianz stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Allianz's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Allianz's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Allianz shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.
Allianz's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4974. 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 Allianz's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dividend payout ratio: 59.64% of net profits
Recently Allianz has paid out, on average, around 59.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Allianz shareholders could enjoy a 5.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Allianz's case, that would currently equate to about $1.04 per share.
Allianz'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.
Allianz's most recent dividend payout was on 29 May 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 May 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Allianz's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.48 up to $25.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while Allianz's is 1.1681. This would suggest that Allianz'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).
