Is BWX under- or over-valued?
Valuing BWX stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BWX's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BWX's P/E ratio
BWX's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, BWX shares trade at around 33x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14).
BWX's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $26.4 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a BWX's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$187.7 million|

BWX share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 43.33% of net profits
Recently BWX has paid out, on average, around 43.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BWX shareholders could enjoy a 1.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BWX's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.039 per share.
While BWX's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that BWX may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
BWX share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, BWX's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.3867 up to $5.1513. 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 BWX's is 1.75. This would suggest that BWX's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
