Is Acorn Capital Investment Fund under- or over-valued?

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

Acorn Capital Investment Fund's P/E ratio

Acorn Capital Investment Fund's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Acorn Capital Investment Fund shares trade at around 4x 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.

Acorn Capital Investment Fund share dividends

18%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.61% of net profits

Recently Acorn Capital Investment Fund has paid out, on average, around 17.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Acorn Capital Investment Fund shareholders could enjoy a 4.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Acorn Capital Investment Fund's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.08 per share.

While Acorn Capital Investment Fund's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Acorn Capital Investment Fund is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Acorn Capital Investment Fund's shares ever split?

Acorn Capital Investment Fund's shares were split on a 4:3 basis on 11 August 2019. So if you had owned 3 shares 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 Acorn Capital Investment Fund shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Acorn Capital Investment Fund shares which in turn could have impacted Acorn Capital Investment Fund's share price.

Acorn Capital Investment Fund share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Acorn Capital Investment Fund's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.1426 up to $1.7571. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ACQ.AU volatility(beta: 0.74)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 Acorn Capital Investment Fund's is 0.7366. This would suggest that Acorn Capital Investment Fund's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
