Is Beacon Lighting Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Beacon Lighting Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Beacon Lighting Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Beacon Lighting Group's P/E ratio
Beacon Lighting 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 12x. In other words, Beacon Lighting Group shares trade at around 12x 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.
Beacon Lighting Group's EBITDA
Beacon Lighting Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $64.2 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Beacon Lighting Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Beacon Lighting Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 51.76% of net profits
Recently Beacon Lighting Group has paid out, on average, around 51.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.36% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Beacon Lighting Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.36% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Beacon Lighting Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.088 per share.
Beacon Lighting 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 8 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Beacon Lighting Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Beacon Lighting Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.1644 up to $2.22. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Beacon Lighting Group's is 1.2719. This would suggest that Beacon Lighting Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
