Is Ally Financial under- or over-valued?
Valuing Ally Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ally Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ally Financial's P/E ratio
Ally Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Ally Financial shares trade at around 7x 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.
Ally Financial's PEG ratio
Ally Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3048. 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 Ally Financial'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 Ally Financial shares
There are currently 12.9 million Ally Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Ally Financial's "short interest". This figure is 14.2% down from 15.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ally Financial shares can be evaluated.
Ally Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Ally Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ally Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ally Financial shares traded daily (recently around 3.5 million). Ally Financial's SIR currently stands at 3.66. In other words for every 100,000 Ally Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3660 shares are currently held short.
However Ally Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ally Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ally Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ally Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ally Financial shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0359% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ally Financial shares, roughly 36 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 Ally Financial.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Ally Financial is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Ally Financial's social score
Social score: 21.81/100

Ally Financial share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 10.41% of net profits
Recently Ally Financial has paid out, on average, around 10.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ally Financial shareholders could enjoy a 1.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ally Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.76 per share.
While Ally Financial's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ally Financial is investing more in its future growth.
Ally Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 15 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Ally Financial's shares ever split?
Ally Financial's shares were split on a 310:1 basis on 9 April 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 310 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ally Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 99.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ally Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Ally Financial's share price.
Ally Financial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Ally Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.6456 up to $56.61. 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 Ally Financial's is 1.5789. This would suggest that Ally Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
