Is Autoscope Technologies Corporation under- or over-valued?

Valuing Autoscope Technologies Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Autoscope Technologies Corporation'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.

Autoscope Technologies Corporation share dividends

49%

Dividend payout ratio: 48.94% of net profits

Recently Autoscope Technologies Corporation has paid out, on average, around 48.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Autoscope Technologies Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 7.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Autoscope Technologies Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

While Autoscope Technologies Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Autoscope Technologies Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Autoscope Technologies Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 19 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Autoscope Technologies Corporation's shares ever split?

Autoscope Technologies Corporation's shares were split on a 6:5 basis on 12 April 2000. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 6 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 16.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Autoscope Technologies Corporation's share price.

Autoscope Technologies Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Autoscope Technologies Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.0036 up to $11.4084. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ISNS.US volatility(beta: 1.1)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Autoscope Technologies Corporation's is 1.1017. This would suggest that Autoscope Technologies 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).
