Is AMA Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing AMA Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AMA Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AMA Group's P/E ratio
AMA Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 127x. In other words, AMA Group shares trade at around 127x 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.
AMA Group's EBITDA
AMA Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $46 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a AMA Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

AMA Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 545.86% of net profits
Recently AMA Group has paid out, on average, around 545.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AMA Group shareholders could enjoy a 7.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AMA Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.04 per share.
AMA Group'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 September 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").
AMA Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, AMA Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.15 up to $1.405. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while AMA Group's is 1.8458. This would suggest that AMA Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
