Is Collection House under- or over-valued?
Valuing Collection House stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Collection House's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.
Collection House's EBITDA
Collection House's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $42 million (£0.0 million).

Collection House share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 36.36% of net profits
Recently Collection House has paid out, on average, around 36.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Collection House shareholders could enjoy a 7.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Collection House's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.08 per share.
While Collection House's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Collection House 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 1 October 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").
