Is AngloGold Ashanti under- or over-valued?

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.

AngloGold Ashanti's P/E ratio

AngloGold Ashanti's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 50x. In other words, AngloGold Ashanti shares trade at around 50x 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.

AngloGold Ashanti's EBITDA

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

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

AngloGold Ashanti share dividends

23%

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 21 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AngloGold Ashanti's shares ever split?

AngloGold Ashanti's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 December 2002. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AngloGold Ashanti shares – just the quantity. 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.

AngloGold Ashanti share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AngloGold Ashanti's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.47 up to $8.68. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while AngloGold Ashanti's is 0.3452. This would suggest that AngloGold Ashanti's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
