Is Asaleo Care under- or over-valued?

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

Asaleo Care's P/E ratio

Asaleo Care's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Asaleo Care shares trade at around 24x 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.

Asaleo Care's EBITDA

Asaleo Care's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $77.2 million (£0.0 million).

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

Asaleo Care share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 28.57% of net profits

Recently Asaleo Care has paid out, on average, around 28.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Asaleo Care shareholders could enjoy a 4.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Asaleo Care's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.03 per share.

While Asaleo Care's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Asaleo Care 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 14 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Asaleo Care share price volatility
