Is Aon under- or over-valued?
Valuing Aon stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Aon's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Aon's P/E ratio
Aon's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 44x. In other words, Aon shares trade at around 44x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Aon's PEG ratio
Aon's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6966. 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 Aon's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Aon's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Aon's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$12.3 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||29.38%|
|Gross profit TTM||$5.5 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||6.9%|
|Return on equity TTM||50.35%|
|Market capitalisation||$56.6 billion|

Aon'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 Aon.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Aon's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 27.5
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Aon's overall score of 27.5 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 35th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Aon 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.).
Aon's environmental score
Environmental score: 3.06/100
Aon's environmental score of 3.06 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Aon is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Aon's social score
Social score: 14.44/100
Aon's social score of 14.44 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Aon is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Aon's governance score
Governance score: 16/100
Aon's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Aon is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Aon's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Aon scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Aon has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Aon share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 16.63% of net profits
Recently Aon has paid out, on average, around 16.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.8% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Aon shareholders could enjoy a 0.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Aon's case, that would currently equate to about $2.04 per share.
While Aon's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Aon is investing more in its future growth.
Aon's most recent dividend payout was on 13 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Aon's shares ever split?
Aon's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 18 May 1999. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Aon shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aon shares which in turn could have impacted Aon's share price.
Aon share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Aon's shares have ranged in value from as little as $221.5939 up to $341.3778. 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 Aon's is 0.933. This would suggest that Aon's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
