Is Applied Industrial Technologies stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

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

Applied Industrial Technologies share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 20.49% of net profits
Recently Applied Industrial Technologies has paid out, on average, around 20.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Applied Industrial Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 1.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Applied Industrial Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $1.34 per share.
While Applied Industrial Technologies's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Applied Industrial Technologies is investing more in its future growth.
Applied Industrial Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 30 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Applied Industrial Technologies's shares ever split?
Applied Industrial Technologies's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 June 2006. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Applied Industrial Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Applied Industrial Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Applied Industrial Technologies's share price.
Applied Industrial Technologies share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Applied Industrial Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $80.6223 up to $120.8534. 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 Applied Industrial Technologies's is 1.1874. This would suggest that Applied Industrial Technologies's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
