Is Amalgamated Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Amalgamated Financial's P/E ratio

Amalgamated 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 11x. In other words, Amalgamated Financial shares trade at around 11x 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.

Shorting Amalgamated Financial shares

There are currently 169,825 Amalgamated Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Amalgamated Financial's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% down from 181,444 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Amalgamated Financial shares can be evaluated.

Amalgamated Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Amalgamated Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Amalgamated Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Amalgamated Financial shares traded daily (recently around 96491.477272727). Amalgamated Financial's SIR currently stands at 1.76. In other words for every 100,000 Amalgamated Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1760 shares are currently held short.

However Amalgamated Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Amalgamated Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Amalgamated Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Amalgamated Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Amalgamated Financial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.012% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Amalgamated Financial shares, roughly 12 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 Amalgamated Financial.

Amalgamated Financial share dividends

20%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.88% of net profits

Recently Amalgamated Financial has paid out, on average, around 19.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Amalgamated Financial shareholders could enjoy a 1.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Amalgamated Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

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

Amalgamated Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 4 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Amalgamated Financial's shares ever split?

Amalgamated Financial's shares were split on a 20:1 basis on 29 July 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 20 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Amalgamated Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 95% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Amalgamated Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Amalgamated Financial's share price.

Amalgamated Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Amalgamated Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.177 up to $20.22. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMAL.US volatility(beta: 0.91)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 Amalgamated Financial's is 0.9114. This would suggest that Amalgamated Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
