Is Ava Risk Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Ava Risk Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ava Risk Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ava Risk Group's P/E ratio
Ava Risk 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 1x. In other words, Ava Risk Group shares trade at around 1x 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.
Ava Risk Group's EBITDA
Ava Risk Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $7.8 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ava Risk Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Ava Risk Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 16.11% of net profits
Recently Ava Risk Group has paid out, on average, around 16.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 15.57% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ava Risk Group shareholders could enjoy a 15.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ava Risk Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0 per share.
While Ava Risk Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ava Risk Group is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
