Is Credit Corp under- or over-valued?
Valuing Credit Corp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Credit Corp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Credit Corp's P/E ratio
Credit Corp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Credit Corp shares trade at around 9x 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.

|Market capitalisation||$864.4 million|

Credit Corp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.52% of net profits
Recently Credit Corp has paid out, on average, around 1.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Credit Corp shareholders could enjoy a 5.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Credit Corp's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.7 per share.
While Credit Corp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Credit Corp is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Credit Corp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Credit Corp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.49 up to $23.9237. 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 Credit Corp's is 1.827. This would suggest that Credit Corp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
