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

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 Ambev S-A'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 Ambev S-A shares
There are currently 56.2 million Ambev S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Ambev S-A's "short interest". This figure is 36.6% down from 88.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ambev S-A shares can be evaluated.
Ambev S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Ambev S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ambev S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ambev S-A shares traded daily (recently around 29.8 million). Ambev S-A's SIR currently stands at 1.89. In other words for every 100,000 Ambev S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1890 shares are currently held short.
However Ambev S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ambev S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ambev S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ambev S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ambev S-A shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0128% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ambev S-A shares, roughly 13 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 Ambev S-A.

Ambev S-A share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 61.77% of net profits
Recently Ambev S-A has paid out, on average, around 61.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ambev S-A shareholders could enjoy a 0.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ambev S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.49 per share.
Ambev S-A'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.
Ambev S-A's most recent dividend payout was on 3 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Ambev S-A's shares ever split?
Ambev S-A's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 10 November 2013. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ambev S-A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ambev S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Ambev S-A's share price.
Ambev S-A share price volatility
