Is AZZ stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing AZZ stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AZZ's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AZZ's P/E ratio
AZZ's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, AZZ shares trade at around 23x 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.
AZZ's PEG ratio
AZZ's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.46. 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 AZZ's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
AZZ's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $149.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a AZZ's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$873.6 million|
|Operating margin TTM||12.11%|
|Gross profit TTM||$188.7 million|
|Return on assets TTM||6.46%|
|Return on equity TTM||1235.1%|
|Market capitalisation||$1.2 billion|

AZZ share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 21.86% of net profits
Recently AZZ has paid out, on average, around 21.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AZZ shareholders could enjoy a 1.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AZZ's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
While AZZ's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that AZZ is investing more in its future growth.
AZZ's most recent dividend payout was on 7 February 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have AZZ's shares ever split?
AZZ's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 July 2012. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AZZ shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AZZ shares which in turn could have impacted AZZ's share price.
AZZ share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, AZZ's shares have ranged in value from as little as $46.2167 up to $58.4031. 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 AZZ's is 1.3751. This would suggest that AZZ's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
