Is Alico under- or over-valued?
Valuing Alico stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Alico's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Alico's P/E ratio
Alico's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Alico shares trade at around 8x 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.
Alico's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $29.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Alico's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

|Operating margin TTM||13.4%|
|Gross profit TTM||$23.9 million|

|Market capitalisation||$282 million|

Alico share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 36.21% of net profits
Recently Alico has paid out, on average, around 36.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Alico shareholders could enjoy a 5.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alico's case, that would currently equate to about $1.36 per share.
While Alico's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Alico may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Alico's most recent dividend payout was on 14 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Alico's shares ever split?
Alico's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 23 February 1987. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Alico shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alico shares which in turn could have impacted Alico's share price.
Alico share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Alico's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.2564 up to $39.05. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Alico's is 0.5352. This would suggest that Alico's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
