Valuing Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Federal Agricultural Mortgage 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 13x. In other words, Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares trade at around 13x 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.
Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.64. 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 Federal Agricultural Mortgage 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.

Dividend payout ratio: 35.73% of net profits
Recently Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation has paid out, on average, around 35.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $3.44 per share.
While Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 2 August 1999. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $72.0336 up to $136.0014. 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 Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's is 1.0289. This would suggest that Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
