Is Alta Equipment Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

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.

Alta Equipment Group share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 142.5% of net profits

Recently Alta Equipment Group has paid out, on average, around 142.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Alta Equipment Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alta Equipment Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.057 per share.

Alta Equipment Group'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.

Alta Equipment Group's most recent dividend payout was on 30 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Alta Equipment Group share price volatility

ALTG.US volatility(beta: 1.74)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 Alta Equipment Group's is 1.7426. This would suggest that Alta Equipment Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
