Is Ameriprise Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Ameriprise Financial's P/E ratio

Ameriprise 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 8x. In other words, Ameriprise Financial shares trade at around 8x 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.

Ameriprise Financial's PEG ratio

Ameriprise Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1926. 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 Ameriprise Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ameriprise Financial's EBITDA

Ameriprise Financial's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$3.9 billion.

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

Shorting Ameriprise Financial shares

There are currently 2.8 million Ameriprise Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Ameriprise Financial's "short interest". This figure is 5.1% down from 3.0 million last month.

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

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

Ameriprise Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ameriprise Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ameriprise Financial shares traded daily (recently around 596923.94067797). Ameriprise Financial's SIR currently stands at 4.72. In other words for every 100,000 Ameriprise Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4720 shares are currently held short.

However Ameriprise Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ameriprise Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ameriprise Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ameriprise Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ameriprise Financial shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0264% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ameriprise Financial shares, roughly 26 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 Ameriprise Financial.

Ameriprise Financial share dividends

20%

Dividend payout ratio: 20.46% of net profits

Recently Ameriprise Financial has paid out, on average, around 20.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ameriprise Financial shareholders could enjoy a 2.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ameriprise Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $4.16 per share.

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

Ameriprise Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 21 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

AMP.US volatility(beta: 1.77)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 Ameriprise Financial's is 1.7731. This would suggest that Ameriprise Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
