Is Assurant stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Assurant stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Assurant's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Assurant's P/E ratio
Assurant's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Assurant shares trade at around 22x 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.
Assurant's PEG ratio
Assurant's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.46. 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 Assurant's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Assurant's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $719.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Assurant's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Assurant share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 35.8% of net profits
Recently Assurant has paid out, on average, around 35.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Assurant shareholders could enjoy a 2.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Assurant's case, that would currently equate to about $2.72 per share.
While Assurant's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Assurant may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Assurant's most recent dividend payout was on 19 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Assurant share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Assurant's shares have ranged in value from as little as $118.3543 up to $191.5324. 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 Assurant's is 0.5347. This would suggest that Assurant's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
