Is AJ Bell under- or over-valued?

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

P/E ratio

AJ Bell's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 46x. In other words, AJ Bell shares trade at around 46x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

AJ Bell share dividends

68%

Dividend payout ratio: 68.44% of net profits

Recently AJ Bell has paid out, on average, around 68.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 1.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AJ Bell's case, that would currently equate to about 0.062p per share.

AJ Bell's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AJ Bell's shares have ranged in value from as little as 349.8893p up to 487p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AJB.LSE volatility(beta: 0.72)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while AJ Bell's is 0.7213. This would suggest that AJ Bell's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
