Is CML Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing CML Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of CML Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
CML Group's P/E ratio
CML Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, CML Group shares trade at around 20x 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.
CML Group's EBITDA
CML Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $17.2 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a CML Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

CML Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 118.75% of net profits
Recently CML Group has paid out, on average, around 118.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CML Group shareholders could enjoy a 10.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CML Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.04 per share.
CML Group'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 15 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
CML Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, CML Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.22 up to $0.57. 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 CML Group's is 0.6724. This would suggest that CML Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
