Is Ameriprise Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Ameriprise Financial's P/E ratio

Ameriprise 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 16x. In other words, Ameriprise Financial shares trade at around 16x 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.

Ameriprise Financial's PEG ratio

Ameriprise Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9186. 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 Ameriprise 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.

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

Ameriprise Financial share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.01% of net profits

Recently Ameriprise Financial has paid out, on average, around 21.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ameriprise Financial shareholders could enjoy a 1.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ameriprise Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $4.34 per share.

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

Ameriprise Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 19 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

AMP.US volatility(beta: 1.61)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 Ameriprise Financial's is 1.6062. This would suggest that Ameriprise 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).
