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.

Collection House's P/E ratio

Collection House's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Collection House shares trade at around 5x 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.

Collection House's EBITDA

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

The EBITDA is a measure of a Collection House's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Collection House share dividends

36%

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").

Collection House share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Collection House's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.03 up to $1.29. 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 Collection House's is 0.0813. This would suggest that Collection House's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
