Is Great Ajax stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Great Ajax stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Great Ajax's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Great Ajax's P/E ratio
Great Ajax's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Great Ajax shares trade at around 9x 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.

Great Ajax share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 49.01% of net profits
Recently Great Ajax has paid out, on average, around 49.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Great Ajax shareholders could enjoy a 7.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Great Ajax's case, that would currently equate to about $0.74 per share.
While Great Ajax's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Great Ajax may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Great Ajax's most recent dividend payout was on 24 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Great Ajax's shares ever split?
Great Ajax's shares were split on a 2857:2856 basis on 15 March 2020. So if you had owned 2856 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2857 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Great Ajax shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Great Ajax shares which in turn could have impacted Great Ajax's share price.
Great Ajax share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Great Ajax's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.9893 up to $14.3883. 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 Great Ajax's is 1.7516. This would suggest that Great Ajax's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
