Is it a good time to buy FGL stock?

Is FGL under- or over-valued?

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

FGL's P/E ratio

FGL's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, FGL shares trade at around 5x 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.


FGL's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $246 million.

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

FGL share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 3.16% of net profits

Recently FGL has paid out, on average, around 3.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FGL shareholders could enjoy a 0.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FGL's case, that would currently equate to about $0.04 per share.

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

FGL's most recent dividend payout was on 7 June 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 May 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

FGL share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, FGL's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0 up to $0. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FG.US volatility(beta: 0.63)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 FGL's is 0.6311. This would suggest that FGL's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
