Is CVC under- or over-valued?
Valuing CVC stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of CVC 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
CVC 's P/E ratio
CVC 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 169x. In other words, CVC shares trade at around 169x 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.
CVC 's EBITDA
CVC 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $10 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a CVC 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$16.2 million|
|Operating margin TTM||61.06%|
|Gross profit TTM||$16.2 million|
|Return on assets TTM||2.01%|
|Return on equity TTM||0.05%|
|Market capitalisation||$199 million|
TTM: trailing 12 months
CVC share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1685.39% of net profits
Recently CVC has paid out, on average, around 1685.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CVC shareholders could enjoy a 11.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CVC 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.16 per share.
CVC '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 5 August 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have CVC 's shares ever split?
CVC 's shares were split on 11 June 1997.
CVC share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, CVC 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.06 up to $2.25. 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 CVC 's is 1.0536. This would suggest that CVC '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).
