Is Alamo Group under- or over-valued?

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

Alamo Group's P/E ratio

Alamo 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 27x. In other words, Alamo Group shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Alamo Group's PEG ratio

Alamo Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.89. 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 Alamo 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.

Alamo Group's EBITDA

Alamo Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $153.2 million.

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

Alamo Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 9.79% of net profits

Recently Alamo Group has paid out, on average, around 9.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Alamo Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alamo Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.55 per share.

While Alamo Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Alamo Group is investing more in its future growth.

Alamo Group's most recent dividend payout was on 31 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Alamo Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Alamo Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $134.386 up to $165.4646. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ALG.US volatility(beta: 0.99)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 Alamo Group's is 0.9944. This would suggest that Alamo Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
