Is Civmec under- or over-valued?
Valuing Civmec stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Civmec 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Civmec 's P/E ratio
Civmec 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Civmec shares trade at around 12x 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.
Civmec 's EBITDA
Civmec 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $35.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Civmec 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$391.9 million|
|Operating margin TTM||6.37%|
|Gross profit TTM||$44.7 million|
|Return on assets TTM||3.03%|
|Return on equity TTM||8.03%|
|Market capitalisation||$210.7 million|

Civmec share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 16.63% of net profits
Recently Civmec has paid out, on average, around 16.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Civmec shareholders could enjoy a 2.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Civmec 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.01 per share.
While Civmec 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Civmec is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Civmec share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Civmec 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.35 up to $0.51. 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 Civmec 's is 1.0511. This would suggest that Civmec 's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
