Is Aristocrat under- or over-valued?
Valuing Aristocrat stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Aristocrat's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Aristocrat's P/E ratio
Aristocrat's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 65x. In other words, Aristocrat shares trade at around 65x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Aristocrat's PEG ratio
Aristocrat's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.96. 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 Aristocrat's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Aristocrat's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $877.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Aristocrat's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$4.1 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||14.78%|
|Gross profit TTM||$2 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||4.78%|
|Return on equity TTM||12.28%|
|Market capitalisation||$27.1 billion|

Aristocrat'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 Aristocrat.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Aristocrat's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 32.11
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Aristocrat's overall score of 32.11 (as at 12/31/2018) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 41st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Aristocrat 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.).
Aristocrat's environmental score
Environmental score: 10.15/100
Aristocrat's environmental score of 10.15 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Aristocrat is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Aristocrat's social score
Social score: 15.97/100
Aristocrat's social score of 15.97 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Aristocrat is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Aristocrat share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 25% of net profits
Recently Aristocrat has paid out, on average, around 25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Aristocrat shareholders could enjoy a 0.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Aristocrat's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.25 per share.
While Aristocrat's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Aristocrat may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Aristocrat's shares ever split?
Aristocrat's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 23 May 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Aristocrat shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aristocrat shares which in turn could have impacted Aristocrat's share price.
Aristocrat share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Aristocrat's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.9678 up to $43.17. 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 Aristocrat's is 1.1117. This would suggest that Aristocrat's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
