Is Australian Leaders Fund under- or over-valued?
Valuing Australian Leaders Fund stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Australian Leaders Fund's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Australian Leaders Fund's P/E ratio
Australian Leaders Fund's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 125x. In other words, Australian Leaders Fund shares trade at around 125x 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.

Australian Leaders Fund share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 684.93% of net profits
Recently Australian Leaders Fund has paid out, on average, around 684.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.49% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Australian Leaders Fund shareholders could enjoy a 5.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Australian Leaders Fund's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.05 per share.
Australian Leaders Fund'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 2 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Australian Leaders Fund share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Australian Leaders Fund's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.8 up to $1.015. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
