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 69x. In other words, Credit Corp shares trade at around 69x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Credit Corp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 282.35% of net profits
Recently Credit Corp has paid out, on average, around 282.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.34% 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 4.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Credit Corp's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.72 per share.
Credit Corp's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 March 2020 (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 $6.01 up to $37.99. 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 Credit Corp's is 1.206. This would suggest that Credit Corp'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).
