Is Atlas stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Atlas stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Atlas's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Atlas's P/E ratio
Atlas's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Atlas shares trade at around 8x 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.
Atlas's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Atlas's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

|Gross profit TTM||$1 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||4.24%|

|Market capitalisation||$3.9 billion|

Atlas share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 29.07% of net profits
Recently Atlas has paid out, on average, around 29.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.6% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Atlas shareholders could enjoy a 3.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Atlas's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.
While Atlas's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Atlas may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Atlas's most recent dividend payout was on 1 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Atlas's shares ever split?
Atlas's shares were split on 28 February 2020.
Atlas share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Atlas's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.0139 up to $15.8962. 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 Atlas's is 1.0587. This would suggest that Atlas'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).
