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 111x. In other words, AMP shares trade at around 111x 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.

AMP's EBITDA

AMP's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.3 billion (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a AMP's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Revenue TTM $3 billion
Operating margin TTM 42.81%
Gross profit TTM $2.4 billion
Return on assets TTM 2.31%
Return on equity TTM 0.47%

Book value 1.414
Market capitalisation $3 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

AMP Ltd was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 31.99
Total ESG percentile 67.32
Environmental score 4.93

AMP share dividends

We're not expecting AMP to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have AMP's shares ever split?

AMP's shares were split on a 1.3419:1 basis on 16 December 2003. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 1.3419 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AMP shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AMP shares which in turn could have impacted AMP's share price.

AMP share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AMP's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.8274 up to $1.2816. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMP.AU volatility(beta: 0.68)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while AMP's is 0.678. This would suggest that AMP's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

Past developments

25 January 2023: AMP will book a post-tax impairment charge of $68 million in its annual results to recognise the cost of onerous office space lease contracts as well as a writedown on the value of its advice software. The impairments would result in a reduction of the 2022 financial year statutory profit when results are announced on 16 February, but would not impact underlying net profit after tax.
31 January 2023: Wealth manager AMP has acquired neobank Nano’s home loan portfolio, adding approximately $400 million to AMP Bank’s residential mortgage book. AMP said the acquisition would support the growth of its bank as it streamlines its operations. It would look for more bolt-ons to build up capacity.
