Is it a good time to buy Air New Zealand 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 Air New Zealand under- or over-valued?

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

Air New Zealand's P/E ratio

Air New Zealand's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Air New Zealand shares trade at around 7x 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.

Air New Zealand's PEG ratio

Air New Zealand's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.868. 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 Air New Zealand's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Air New Zealand share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 113.32% of net profits

Recently Air New Zealand has paid out, on average, around 113.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 24.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Air New Zealand shareholders could enjoy a 24.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Air New Zealand's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.21 per share.

Air New Zealand'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 11 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Air New Zealand's shares ever split?

Air New Zealand's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 16 August 2004. 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 Air New Zealand shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Air New Zealand shares which in turn could have impacted Air New Zealand's share price.

Air New Zealand share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Air New Zealand's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.8 up to $2.94. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AIZ.AU volatility(beta: 1.64)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 Air New Zealand's is 1.6392. This would suggest that Air New Zealand's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
