Is COSOL under- or over-valued?
Valuing COSOL stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of COSOL's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
COSOL's P/E ratio
COSOL's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, COSOL shares trade at around 15x 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.
COSOL's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.7 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a COSOL's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

|Market capitalisation||$72.3 million|

COSOL share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 48% of net profits
Recently COSOL has paid out, on average, around 48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), COSOL shareholders could enjoy a 4.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In COSOL's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.019 per share.
While COSOL's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that COSOL 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 30 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
COSOL share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, COSOL's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.45 up to $0.7. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while COSOL's is 1.5467. This would suggest that COSOL's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
