Is it a good time to buy Abacus Property stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Abacus Property under- or over-valued?

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

Abacus Property's P/E ratio

Abacus Property's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Abacus Property shares trade at around 21x 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.

Abacus Property's EBITDA

Abacus Property's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $177.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Abacus Property's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Abacus Property share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 140.36% of net profits

Recently Abacus Property has paid out, on average, around 140.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Abacus Property shareholders could enjoy a 6.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Abacus Property's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.18 per share.

Abacus Property's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Abacus Property's shares ever split?

Abacus Property's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 15 November 2010. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Abacus Property shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Abacus Property shares which in turn could have impacted Abacus Property's share price.

Abacus Property share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Abacus Property's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.955 up to $4.08. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ABP.AU volatility(beta: 0.82)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Abacus Property's is 0.8175. This would suggest that Abacus Property's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
