Is AMP under- or over-valued?
Valuing AMP stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AMP's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AMP's P/E ratio
AMP's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, AMP shares trade at around 24x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
AMP's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $528 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a AMP's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$3.4 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||14.01%|
|Gross profit TTM||$3.4 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||0.33%|
|Return on equity TTM||1.51%|
|Market capitalisation||$4.2 billion|

AMP's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like AMP.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
AMP's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 31.99
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and AMP's overall score of 31.99 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 67th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like AMP is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
AMP's environmental score
Environmental score: 4.93/100
AMP's environmental score of 4.93 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that AMP is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
AMP's social score
Social score: 14.29/100
AMP's social score of 14.29 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that AMP is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
AMP's governance score
Governance score: 15.77/100
AMP's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that AMP is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
AMP's controversy score
Controversy score: 4/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. AMP scored a 4 out of 5 for controversy – the second-lowest score possible, reflecting that AMP has a damaged public profile.
Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary
|Total ESG score||31.99|
|Total ESG percentile||67.32|
|Environmental score percentile||4|
|Social score percentile||4|
|Governance score percentile||4|
|Level of controversy||4|
AMP share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 5% of net profits
Recently AMP has paid out, on average, around 5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AMP shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AMP's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.04 per share.
While AMP's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that AMP is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have AMP's shares ever split?
AMP's shares were split on 16 December 2003.
AMP share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, AMP's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.05 up to $1.8408. 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 (AU average) beta is 1, while AMP's is 0.9232. This would suggest that AMP's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
