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.

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 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").
BrightSphere Investment Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, BrightSphere Investment Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.8299 up to $31.1585. 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 BrightSphere Investment Group's is 1.7547. This would suggest that BrightSphere Investment Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
