Is American International Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing American International Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of American International Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
American International Group's P/E ratio
American International Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, American International Group shares trade at around 9x 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.
American International Group's PEG ratio
American International Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5489. 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 American International Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
American International Group's EBITDA
American International Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $12.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a American International Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

American International Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 25.19% of net profits
Recently American International Group has paid out, on average, around 25.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), American International Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In American International Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.
While American International Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that American International Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
American International Group's most recent dividend payout was on 28 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have American International Group's shares ever split?
American International Group's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 30 June 2009. So if you had owned 20 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your American International Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for American International Group shares which in turn could have impacted American International Group's share price.
American International Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, American International Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $45.0963 up to $63.6516. 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 American International Group's is 1.1525. This would suggest that American International Group's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
