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

Dividend payout ratio: 22.99% of net profits
Recently AngloGold Ashanti has paid out, on average, around 22.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AngloGold Ashanti shareholders could enjoy a 1.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AngloGold Ashanti's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.46 per share.
While AngloGold Ashanti's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that AngloGold Ashanti is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
AngloGold Ashanti's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 December 2002. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 2 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AngloGold Ashanti shares which in turn could have impacted AngloGold Ashanti's share price.
Over the last 12 months, AngloGold Ashanti's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.7275 up to $8.68. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
