Is Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation under- or over-valued?

Valuing Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's P/E ratio

Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares trade at around 12x 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.

Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's PEG ratio

Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.64. 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 Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares

There are currently 110,032 Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 17% down from 132,620 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 54471.287128713). Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.02. In other words for every 100,000 Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2020 shares are currently held short.

However Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares, roughly 0 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 Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation.

Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation share dividends

35%

Dividend payout ratio: 35.12% of net profits

Recently Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation has paid out, on average, around 35.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $3.2 per share.

While Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's shares ever split?

Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 1 August 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's share price.

Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $50.0399 up to $103.5979. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AGM.US volatility(beta: 1.14)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 Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's is 1.144. This would suggest that Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation'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).
