Is Apollo Global Management under- or over-valued?

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

Apollo Global Management's P/E ratio

Apollo Global 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 11x. In other words, Apollo Global Management shares trade at around 11x 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.

Apollo Global Management's PEG ratio

Apollo Global Management's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.37. 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 Apollo Global Management's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Apollo Global Management shares

There are currently 4.3 million Apollo Global Management shares held short by investors – that's known as Apollo Global Management's "short interest". This figure is 10.2% down from 4.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Apollo Global Management shares can be evaluated.

Apollo Global Management's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Apollo Global Management's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Apollo Global Management shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Apollo Global Management shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Apollo Global Management's SIR currently stands at 3.55. In other words for every 100,000 Apollo Global Management shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3550 shares are currently held short.

However Apollo Global Management's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Apollo Global Management shares, or, against the total number of tradable Apollo Global Management shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Apollo Global Management's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Apollo Global Management shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0248% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Apollo Global Management shares, roughly 25 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 Apollo Global Management.

Apollo Global Management share dividends

93%

Dividend payout ratio: 93.12% of net profits

Recently Apollo Global Management has paid out, on average, around 93.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Apollo Global Management shareholders could enjoy a 4.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Apollo Global Management's case, that would currently equate to about $1.96 per share.

Apollo Global 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.

Apollo Global Management's most recent dividend payout was on 31 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Apollo Global Management share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Apollo Global Management's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.46 up to $55.385. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

APO.US volatility(beta: 1.52)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 Apollo Global Management's is 1.5229. This would suggest that Apollo Global Management's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
