Is Allison Transmission under- or over-valued?
Valuing Allison Transmission stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Allison Transmission's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Allison Transmission'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 Allison Transmission shares
There are currently 4.0 million Allison Transmission shares held short by investors – that's known as Allison Transmission's "short interest". This figure is 4.5% up from 3.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Allison Transmission shares can be evaluated.
Allison Transmission's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Allison Transmission's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Allison Transmission shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Allison Transmission shares traded daily (recently around 761806.67938931). Allison Transmission's SIR currently stands at 5.24. In other words for every 100,000 Allison Transmission shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5240 shares are currently held short.
However Allison Transmission's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Allison Transmission shares, or, against the total number of tradable Allison Transmission shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Allison Transmission's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Allison Transmission shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.037% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Allison Transmission shares, roughly 37 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 Allison Transmission.

Allison Transmission share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 27.2% of net profits
Recently Allison Transmission has paid out, on average, around 27.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Allison Transmission shareholders could enjoy a 1.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Allison Transmission's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.
While Allison Transmission's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Allison Transmission may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Allison Transmission's most recent dividend payout was on 27 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Allison Transmission share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Allison Transmission's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.267 up to $46.2052. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Allison Transmission's is 1.1812. This would suggest that Allison Transmission'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).
