Is AngloGold Ashanti stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

AngloGold Ashanti's P/E ratio

AngloGold Ashanti'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, AngloGold Ashanti 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.

AngloGold Ashanti's EBITDA

AngloGold Ashanti's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.8 billion.

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

AngloGold Ashanti share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 43.39% of net profits

Recently AngloGold Ashanti has paid out, on average, around 43.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AngloGold Ashanti shareholders could enjoy a 2.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AngloGold Ashanti's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.

While AngloGold Ashanti's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that AngloGold Ashanti may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

AngloGold Ashanti's most recent dividend payout was on 19 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AngloGold Ashanti's shares ever split?

AngloGold Ashanti's shares were split on a 1033:988 basis on 29 May 2008. So if you had owned 988 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1033 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AngloGold Ashanti shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AngloGold Ashanti shares which in turn could have impacted AngloGold Ashanti's share price.

AngloGold Ashanti share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AngloGold Ashanti's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.57 up to $26.6712. 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 AngloGold Ashanti's is -0.0442. This would suggest that AngloGold Ashanti's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, AngloGold Ashanti has bucked the trend.
