Is Bell Financial Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Bell Financial Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Bell Financial Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Bell Financial Group's P/E ratio
Bell Financial 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, Bell Financial 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.

Bell Financial Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.22% of net profits
Recently Bell Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 1.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.36% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bell Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.36% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bell Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.11 per share.
While Bell Financial Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Bell Financial Group is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Bell Financial Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Bell Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.1636 up to $1.9032. 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 Bell Financial Group's is 1.2891. This would suggest that Bell Financial 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).
