Is Capral under- or over-valued?
Valuing Capral stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Capral's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Capral's P/E ratio
Capral's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Capral shares trade at around 5x 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.
Capral's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $22.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Capral's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Capral share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 37.5% of net profits
Recently Capral has paid out, on average, around 37.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Capral shareholders could enjoy a 6.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Capral's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.45 per share.
While Capral's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Capral 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 9 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Capral's shares ever split?
Capral's shares were split on a 1:30 basis on 4 November 2020. So if you had owned 30 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Capral shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Capral shares which in turn could have impacted Capral's share price.
Capral share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Capral's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.0879 up to $8.28. 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 Capral's is 0.4622. This would suggest that Capral's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
