Is APN Convenience Retail under- or over-valued?
Valuing APN Convenience Retail stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of APN Convenience Retail's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
APN Convenience Retail's P/E ratio
APN Convenience Retail'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, APN Convenience Retail 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.

APN Convenience Retail share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 42.79% of net profits
Recently APN Convenience Retail has paid out, on average, around 42.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), APN Convenience Retail shareholders could enjoy a 5.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In APN Convenience Retail's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.22 per share.
While APN Convenience Retail's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that APN Convenience Retail may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
APN Convenience Retail share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, APN Convenience Retail's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.39 up to $4.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
