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 8x. In other words, Civmec shares trade at around 8x 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 $78 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Civmec 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Civmec share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 23.73% of net profits
Recently Civmec has paid out, on average, around 23.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.13% 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 3.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Civmec 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.02 per share.
While Civmec 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Civmec is investing more in its future growth.
