Is AUB Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing AUB Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AUB Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AUB Group's P/E ratio
AUB 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 25x. In other words, AUB Group shares trade at around 25x 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.
AUB Group's PEG ratio
AUB Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 72. 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 AUB Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
AUB Group's EBITDA
AUB Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $90.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a AUB Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

AUB Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 73.49% of net profits
Recently AUB Group has paid out, on average, around 73.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AUB Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AUB Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.5 per share.
AUB 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 6 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
