Is Countplus under- or over-valued?
Valuing Countplus stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Countplus 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Countplus 's P/E ratio
Countplus 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Countplus shares trade at around 7x 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.
Countplus 's EBITDA
Countplus 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $9.1 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Countplus 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$82.6 million|
|Operating margin TTM||8.2%|
|Gross profit TTM||$29.9 million|
|Return on assets TTM||1.96%|
|Return on equity TTM||25.02%|
|Market capitalisation||$110.8 million|

Countplus share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 15.8% of net profits
Recently Countplus has paid out, on average, around 15.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Countplus shareholders could enjoy a 2.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Countplus 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.03 per share.
While Countplus 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Countplus is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Countplus share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Countplus 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.7 up to $1.34. 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 Countplus 's is 1.0849. This would suggest that Countplus 's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
