Is Centuria Industrial under- or over-valued?
Valuing Centuria Industrial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Centuria Industrial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Centuria Industrial's P/E ratio
Centuria Industrial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Centuria Industrial shares trade at around 14x 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.

Centuria Industrial share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 83.11% of net profits
Recently Centuria Industrial has paid out, on average, around 83.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Centuria Industrial shareholders could enjoy a 5.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Centuria Industrial's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.17 per share.
Centuria Industrial'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 28 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Centuria Industrial's shares ever split?
Centuria Industrial's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 1 July 2013. So if you had owned 4 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 Centuria Industrial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Centuria Industrial shares which in turn could have impacted Centuria Industrial's share price.
Centuria Industrial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Centuria Industrial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.24 up to $3.79. 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 Centuria Industrial's is 0.5512. This would suggest that Centuria Industrial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
