Is Annaly Capital Management stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Annaly Capital Management's P/E ratio

Annaly Capital Management's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Annaly Capital Management shares trade at around 3x 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.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 15.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Annaly Capital Management shareholders could enjoy a 15.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Annaly Capital Management's case, that would currently equate to about $3.52 per share.

Annaly Capital Management'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.

Have Annaly Capital Management's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Annaly Capital Management shares which in turn could have impacted Annaly Capital Management's share price.

Annaly Capital Management share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Annaly Capital Management's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.5014 up to $27.2344. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
