Is AllianceBernstein Holding L-P under- or over-valued?

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

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's P/E ratio

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares trade at around 17x 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.

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's PEG ratio

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7457. 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 AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 100% of net profits

Recently AllianceBernstein Holding L-P has paid out, on average, around 100% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shareholders could enjoy a 7.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's case, that would currently equate to about $3.58 per share.

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's most recent dividend payout was on 23 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's shares ever split?

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 April 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AllianceBernstein Holding L-P shares which in turn could have impacted AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's share price.

AllianceBernstein Holding L-P share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.4747 up to $57.2999. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AB.US volatility(beta: 1.43)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 AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's is 1.4278. This would suggest that AllianceBernstein Holding L-P's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
