Is BKI Investment Company under- or over-valued?
Valuing BKI Investment Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BKI Investment Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BKI Investment Company's P/E ratio
BKI Investment Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, BKI Investment Company shares trade at around 21x 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.

BKI Investment Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 77.08% of net profits
Recently BKI Investment Company has paid out, on average, around 77.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BKI Investment Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BKI Investment Company's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.05 per share.
BKI Investment Company'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 7 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
BKI Investment Company share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, BKI Investment Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.03 up to $1.74. 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 BKI Investment Company's is 0.6915. This would suggest that BKI Investment Company's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
