Is Apollo Investment stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Apollo Investment stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Apollo Investment's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Apollo Investment's P/E ratio
Apollo Investment's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Apollo Investment shares trade at around 16x 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 Investment's PEG ratio
Apollo Investment's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.18. 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 Investment's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Apollo Investment share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 31.97% of net profits
Recently Apollo Investment has paid out, on average, around 31.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Apollo Investment shareholders could enjoy a 9.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Apollo Investment's case, that would currently equate to about $1.25 per share.
While Apollo Investment's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Apollo Investment may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Apollo Investment's most recent dividend payout was on 3 January 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Apollo Investment's shares ever split?
Apollo Investment's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 2 December 2018. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Apollo Investment shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Apollo Investment shares which in turn could have impacted Apollo Investment's share price.
Apollo Investment share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Apollo Investment's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.01 up to $13.69. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Apollo Investment's is 1.7048. This would suggest that Apollo Investment's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
