Is it a good time to buy Affiliated Managers Group stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Affiliated Managers Group under- or over-valued?

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

Affiliated Managers Group's P/E ratio

Affiliated Managers 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 50x. In other words, Affiliated Managers Group shares trade at around 50x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

However, Affiliated Managers Group's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the asset management industry or those of similar companies.

Affiliated Managers Group's PEG ratio

Affiliated Managers Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8343. 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 Affiliated Managers Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider Affiliated Managers Group's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Affiliated Managers Group's EBITDA

Affiliated Managers Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $634 million.

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

To put Affiliated Managers Group's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

There are currently 2.2 million Affiliated Managers Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Affiliated Managers Group's "short interest". This figure is 36.8% up from 1.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Affiliated Managers Group shares can be evaluated.

Affiliated Managers Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Affiliated Managers Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Affiliated Managers Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Affiliated Managers Group shares traded daily (recently around 354444.95114007). Affiliated Managers Group's SIR currently stands at 6.14. In other words for every 100,000 Affiliated Managers Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6140 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Affiliated Managers Group's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Affiliated Managers Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Affiliated Managers Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Affiliated Managers Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Affiliated Managers Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Affiliated Managers Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0685% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Affiliated Managers Group shares, roughly 69 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Affiliated Managers Group.

Affiliated Managers Group share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.56% of net profits

Recently Affiliated Managers Group has paid out, on average, around 2.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Affiliated Managers Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Affiliated Managers Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.04 per share.

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

Affiliated Managers Group's most recent dividend payout was on 20 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Affiliated Managers Group's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

Have Affiliated Managers Group's shares ever split?

Affiliated Managers Group's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 30 March 2004. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 Affiliated Managers Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Affiliated Managers Group shares which in turn could have impacted Affiliated Managers Group's share price.

Affiliated Managers Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Affiliated Managers Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $44.351 up to $115.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMG.US volatility(beta: 1.45)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 Affiliated Managers Group's is 1.448. This would suggest that Affiliated Managers Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

To put Affiliated Managers Group's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
