Is GAMCO Investors under- or over-valued?
Valuing GAMCO Investors stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GAMCO Investors'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.

GAMCO Investors share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 4.31% of net profits
Recently GAMCO Investors has paid out, on average, around 4.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GAMCO Investors shareholders could enjoy a 0.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GAMCO Investors's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.
While GAMCO Investors's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that GAMCO Investors is investing more in its future growth.
GAMCO Investors's most recent dividend payout was on 28 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have GAMCO Investors's shares ever split?
GAMCO Investors's shares were split on a 1857:1000 basis on 1 December 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1857 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your GAMCO Investors shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 46.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for GAMCO Investors shares which in turn could have impacted GAMCO Investors's share price.
GAMCO Investors share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, GAMCO Investors's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.52 up to $29.6933. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that GAMCO Investors's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
