Is Cromwell Property under- or over-valued?

Valuing Cromwell Property stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cromwell Property's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Cromwell Property's P/E ratio

Cromwell Property's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, Cromwell Property shares trade at around 23x 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.

Cromwell Property's EBITDA

Cromwell Property's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $231.2 million.

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

Cromwell Property share dividends

2%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.75% of net profits

Recently Cromwell Property has paid out, on average, around 1.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cromwell Property shareholders could enjoy a 7.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cromwell Property's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.075 per share.

While Cromwell Property's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Cromwell Property is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Cromwell Property's shares ever split?

Cromwell Property's shares were split on 21 May 1997.
