Is Aegon N-V under- or over-valued?
Valuing Aegon N-V stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Aegon N-V's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Dividend payout ratio: 14.25% of net profits
Recently Aegon N-V has paid out, on average, around 14.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Aegon N-V shareholders could enjoy a 2.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Aegon N-V's case, that would currently equate to about $0.14 per share.
While Aegon N-V's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Aegon N-V is investing more in its future growth.

Have Aegon N-V's shares ever split?
Aegon N-V's shares were split on a 104:100 basis on 16 April 2003. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 104 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Aegon N-V shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aegon N-V shares which in turn could have impacted Aegon N-V's share price.
Aegon N-V share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Aegon N-V's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.8178 up to $5.87. 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 Aegon N-V's is 1.5949. This would suggest that Aegon N-V's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
