Is Allegion under- or over-valued?
Valuing Allegion stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Allegion's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Allegion's P/E ratio
Allegion's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Allegion shares trade at around 24x 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.
Allegion's PEG ratio
Allegion's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.6864. 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 Allegion's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Allegion's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $676.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Allegion's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Allegion'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 Allegion.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Allegion's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 29.56
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Allegion's overall score of 29.56 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 40th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Allegion 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.).
Allegion's environmental score
Environmental score: 17.99/100
Allegion's environmental score of 17.99 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Allegion is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Allegion's social score
Social score: 12.71/100
Allegion's social score of 12.71 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Allegion is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Governance score: 11.86/100

Allegion share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 25.85% of net profits
Recently Allegion has paid out, on average, around 25.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Allegion shareholders could enjoy a 1.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Allegion's case, that would currently equate to about $1.4 per share.
While Allegion's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Allegion may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Allegion's most recent dividend payout was on 30 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Allegion share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Allegion's shares have ranged in value from as little as $105.3568 up to $147.9058. 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 Allegion's is 1.1439. This would suggest that Allegion'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).
