Is Applied Industrial Technologies under- or over-valued?

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

Applied Industrial Technologies's P/E ratio

Applied Industrial Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Applied Industrial Technologies shares trade at around 21x 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.

Applied Industrial Technologies's PEG ratio

Applied Industrial Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.71. 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 Applied Industrial Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Applied Industrial Technologies's EBITDA

Applied Industrial Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $338.3 million.

Applied Industrial Technologies share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 25.29% of net profits

Recently Applied Industrial Technologies has paid out, on average, around 25.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Applied Industrial Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 1.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Applied Industrial Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $1.31 per share.

While Applied Industrial Technologies's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Applied Industrial Technologies may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Applied Industrial Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Applied Industrial Technologies's shares ever split?

Applied Industrial Technologies's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 16 June 2006. 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 Applied Industrial Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Applied Industrial Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Applied Industrial Technologies's share price.

Applied Industrial Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Applied Industrial Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $69.0895 up to $109.87. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AIT.US volatility(beta: 1.45)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 Applied Industrial Technologies's is 1.4455. This would suggest that Applied Industrial Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
