Is American International Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing American International Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of American International Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
American International Group's P/E ratio
American International Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, American International Group shares trade at around 4x 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.
American International Group's PEG ratio
American International Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5489. 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 American International Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

American International Group's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like American International Group.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
American International Group's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 33.68
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and American International Group's overall score of 33.68 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 66th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like American International Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
American International Group's environmental score
Environmental score: 4.49/100
American International Group's environmental score of 4.49 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that American International Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
American International Group's social score
Social score: 17.56/100
American International Group's social score of 17.56 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that American International Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
American International Group's governance score
Governance score: 20.63/100
American International Group's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that American International Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
American International Group's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. American International Group scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that American International Group has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
American International Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 28.38% of net profits
Recently American International Group has paid out, on average, around 28.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), American International Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In American International Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.
While American International Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that American International Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
American International Group's most recent dividend payout was on 31 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have American International Group's shares ever split?
American International Group's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 1 July 2009. So if you had owned 20 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your American International Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for American International Group shares which in turn could have impacted American International Group's share price.
American International Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, American International Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $46.8132 up to $64.88. 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 American International Group's is 1.1638. This would suggest that American International Group'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).
