Is Artemis Alpha Trust 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.
Artemis Alpha Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Artemis Alpha Trust shares trade at around 4x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Artemis Alpha Trust share dividends
Dividend yield: 1.26% of stock value
Forward annual dividend yield: 1.34% of stock value
Dividend payout ratio: 5.55% of net profits
Artemis Alpha Trust has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 1.26% of its share value annually.
Artemis Alpha Trust has paid out, on average, around 5.55% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.34% 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 1.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Artemis Alpha Trust's case, that would currently equate to about 5.3p per share.
While Artemis Alpha Trust's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that the company is investing more in its future growth.

Have Artemis Alpha Trust's shares ever split?
Artemis Alpha Trust's shares were split on a 1105:1103 basis on 17 November 2003. So if you had owned 1103 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Artemis Alpha Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Artemis Alpha Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Artemis Alpha Trust's share price.
Share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Artemis Alpha Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as 349.9741p up to 477.9646p. 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 (LSE average) beta is 1, while Artemis Alpha Trust's is 1.4173. This would suggest that Artemis Alpha Trust's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
