Is Cube Entertainment under- or over-valued?

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

Cube Entertainment's P/E ratio

Cube Entertainment's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 195x. In other words, Cube Entertainment shares trade at around 195x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Cube Entertainment's PEG ratio

Cube Entertainment's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2148. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Cube Entertainment's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Cube Entertainment's EBITDA

Cube Entertainment's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £915 million.

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

Cube Entertainment's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Cube Entertainment.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Cube Entertainment's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 22.12

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Cube Entertainment's overall score of 22.12 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 20th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Cube Entertainment is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Cube Entertainment's environmental score

Environmental score: 5.14/100

Cube Entertainment's environmental score of 5.14 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Cube Entertainment is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Cube Entertainment's social score

Social score: 15.6/100

Cube Entertainment's social score of 15.6 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Cube Entertainment is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Cube Entertainment's governance score

Governance score: 3.88/100

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Cube Entertainment scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Cube Entertainment has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Cube Entertainment share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 336.25% of net profits

Recently Cube Entertainment has paid out, on average, around 336.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cube Entertainment shareholders could enjoy a 3.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cube Entertainment's case, that would currently equate to about 0.269p per share.

Cube Entertainment'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 16 January 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Cube Entertainment's shares ever split?

Cube Entertainment's shares were split on a 25:26 basis on 27 June 2017. So if you had owned 26 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 25 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cube Entertainment shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cube Entertainment shares which in turn could have impacted Cube Entertainment's share price.

Cube Entertainment share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cube Entertainment's shares have ranged in value from as little as £865.8 up to £1669. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CPG.LSE volatility(beta: 0.88)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while Cube Entertainment's is 0.8761. This would suggest that Cube Entertainment's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
