Is Altra stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Altra's P/E ratio

Altra's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 235x. In other words, Altra shares trade at around 235x recent earnings.

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.

Altra's PEG ratio

Altra's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1579. 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 Altra's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Altra's EBITDA

Altra's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $354.9 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Altra's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Altra share dividends

11%

Dividend payout ratio: 11.33% of net profits

Recently Altra has paid out, on average, around 11.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Altra shareholders could enjoy a 0.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Altra's case, that would currently equate to about $0.34 per share.

While Altra's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Altra is investing more in its future growth.

Altra's most recent dividend payout was on 2 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Altra share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Altra's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.0543 up to $61.04. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AIMC.US volatility(beta: 2.23)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Altra's is 2.2274. This would suggest that Altra's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
