Is Amalgamated Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Amalgamated Financial's P/E ratio

Amalgamated 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 10x. In other words, Amalgamated Financial shares trade at around 10x 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.

Amalgamated Financial share dividends

20%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.63% of net profits

Recently Amalgamated Financial has paid out, on average, around 19.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Amalgamated Financial shareholders could enjoy a 2.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Amalgamated Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

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

Amalgamated Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Amalgamated Financial's shares ever split?

Amalgamated Financial share price volatility

AMAL.US volatility(beta: 0.89)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
