Is AZZ under- or over-valued?

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 25x. In other words, AZZ shares trade at around 25x 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 $142 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a AZZ's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting AZZ shares

There are currently 250,698 AZZ shares held short by investors – that's known as AZZ's "short interest". This figure is 18.1% down from 306,040 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AZZ shares can be evaluated.

AZZ's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AZZ's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AZZ shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AZZ shares traded daily (recently around 179070). AZZ's SIR currently stands at 1.4. In other words for every 100,000 AZZ shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1400 shares are currently held short.

However AZZ's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AZZ shares, or, against the total number of tradable AZZ shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AZZ's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AZZ shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0102% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AZZ shares, roughly 10 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against AZZ.

AZZ share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 24.37% of net profits

Recently AZZ has paid out, on average, around 24.37% 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), AZZ shareholders could enjoy a 1.3% 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 2 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 July 2021 (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 $31.0046 up to $56.3688. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AZZ.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

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 1.5169. 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).
