Is AIB Group under- or over-valued?

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

AIB Group's P/E ratio

AIB Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 40x. In other words, AIB Group shares trade at around 40x recent earnings.

AIB Group share dividends

We're not expecting AIB Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have AIB Group's shares ever split?

AIB Group's shares were split on a 1:250 basis on 20 December 2015. So if you had owned 250 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AIB Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 24900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for AIB Group shares which in turn could have impacted AIB Group's share price.

AIB Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AIB Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as €0.8545 up to €2.8. 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 (IR average) beta is 1, while AIB Group's is 2.5662. This would suggest that AIB Group's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
