Is BrightSphere Investment Group under- or over-valued?

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

BrightSphere Investment Group's P/E ratio

BrightSphere Investment Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, BrightSphere Investment Group shares trade at around 2x 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.

BrightSphere Investment Group's EBITDA

BrightSphere Investment Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $234.5 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a BrightSphere Investment Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

BrightSphere Investment Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 2.68% of net profits

Recently BrightSphere Investment Group has paid out, on average, around 2.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BrightSphere Investment Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BrightSphere Investment Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.04 per share.

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

BrightSphere Investment Group's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

BSIG.US volatility(beta: 1.75)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
