Is it a good time to buy Bendigo and Adelaide Bank stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Bendigo and Adelaide Bank under- or over-valued?

Valuing Bendigo and Adelaide Bank stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's P/E ratio

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank shares trade at around 17x 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.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 187.5% of net profits

Recently Bendigo and Adelaide Bank has paid out, on average, around 187.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bendigo and Adelaide Bank shareholders could enjoy a 10.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.62 per share.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank'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 5 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
