Is AGCO under- or over-valued?

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

AGCO's P/E ratio

AGCO's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, AGCO shares trade at around 23x 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.

AGCO's PEG ratio

AGCO's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9827. 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 AGCO's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

AGCO's EBITDA

AGCO's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $911.4 million (£0.0 million).

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

  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "AGCO.US"

There are currently 955,553 AGCO shares held short by investors – that's known as AGCO's "short interest". This figure is 28.3% down from 1.3 million last month.

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

AGCO's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AGCO's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AGCO shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AGCO shares traded daily (recently around 702612.5). AGCO's SIR currently stands at 1.36. In other words for every 100,000 AGCO shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1360 shares are currently held short.

However AGCO's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AGCO shares, or, against the total number of tradable AGCO shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AGCO's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AGCO shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0193% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AGCO shares, roughly 19 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against AGCO.

AGCO share dividends

11%

Dividend payout ratio: 11.43% of net profits

Recently AGCO has paid out, on average, around 11.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.49% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AGCO shareholders could enjoy a 0.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AGCO's case, that would currently equate to about $0.64 per share.

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

AGCO's most recent dividend payout was on 15 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AGCO's shares ever split?

AGCO's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 February 1996. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AGCO shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AGCO shares which in turn could have impacted AGCO's share price.

AGCO share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AGCO's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.0202 up to $133.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AGCO.US volatility(beta: 1.28)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 AGCO's is 1.2791. This would suggest that AGCO's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
