Is Ares Management stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Ares Management stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ares Management's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ares Management's P/E ratio
Ares 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 41x. In other words, Ares Management shares trade at around 41x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Ares Management's PEG ratio
Ares Management's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.63. 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 Ares 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.
Ares Management's EBITDA
Ares Management's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $883.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ares Management's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Ares Management share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 80.42% of net profits
Recently Ares Management has paid out, on average, around 80.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ares Management shareholders could enjoy a 3.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ares Management's case, that would currently equate to about $2.16 per share.
Ares 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.
Ares Management's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Ares Management share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Ares Management's shares have ranged in value from as little as $52.7278 up to $87.1546. 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 Ares Management's is 1.2042. This would suggest that Ares Management'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).
