Is Ally Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Ally Financial's P/E ratio

Ally Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Ally Financial shares trade at around 5x 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.

Ally Financial's PEG ratio

Ally Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3048. 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 Ally Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ally Financial'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 Ally Financial.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Ally Financial's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 29.96

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Ally Financial's overall score of 29.96 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 43rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Ally Financial 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.).

Ally Financial's environmental score

Environmental score: 7.14/100

Ally Financial's environmental score of 7.14 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Ally Financial is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Ally Financial's social score

Social score: 21.81/100

Ally Financial's social score of 21.81 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Ally Financial is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Ally Financial's governance score

Governance score: 18.52/100

Ally Financial's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Ally Financial is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Ally Financial's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Ally Financial scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Ally Financial has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Ally Financial share dividends

13%

Dividend payout ratio: 13.03% of net profits

Recently Ally Financial has paid out, on average, around 13.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ally Financial shareholders could enjoy a 2.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ally Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.99 per share.

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

Ally Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 16 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ally Financial's shares ever split?

Ally Financial's shares were split on a 310:1 basis on 10 April 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 310 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ally Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 99.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ally Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Ally Financial's share price.

Ally Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ally Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.05 up to $55.2834. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ALLY.US volatility(beta: 1.32)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 Ally Financial's is 1.3152. This would suggest that Ally Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
