Is AMERISAFE stock undervalued or overvalued?

AMERISAFE's P/E ratio

AMERISAFE's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 27x. In other words, AMERISAFE shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into AMERISAFE's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

AMERISAFE's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $45.1 million.

AMERISAFE share dividends

2%

Recently AMERISAFE has paid out, on average, around 2.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AMERISAFE shareholders could enjoy a 2.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AMERISAFE's case, that would currently equate to about $1.22 per share.

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

AMERISAFE's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
