Is Apollo Investment Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Apollo Investment Corporation's P/E ratio

Apollo Investment Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Apollo Investment Corporation shares trade at around 6x 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.

Apollo Investment Corporation's PEG ratio

Apollo Investment Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.18. 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 Apollo Investment Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Apollo Investment Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 93.2% of net profits

Recently Apollo Investment Corporation has paid out, on average, around 93.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.6% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Apollo Investment Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 9.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Apollo Investment Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.29 per share.

Apollo Investment Corporation'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.

Apollo Investment Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 3 January 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Apollo Investment Corporation's shares ever split?

Apollo Investment Corporation's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 2 December 2018. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Apollo Investment Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Apollo Investment Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Apollo Investment Corporation's share price.

Apollo Investment Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Apollo Investment Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.6921 up to $14.0931. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AINV.US volatility(beta: 2.01)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Apollo Investment Corporation's is 2.0056. This would suggest that Apollo Investment Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
