Is Dusk under- or over-valued?

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

Dusk's P/E ratio

Dusk's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Dusk shares trade at around 7x 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.

Dusk's EBITDA

Dusk's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $25.8 million (£0.0 million).

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

Dusk share dividends

83%

Dividend payout ratio: 83.33% of net profits

Recently Dusk has paid out, on average, around 83.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dusk shareholders could enjoy a 9.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dusk's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.2 per share.

Dusk'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 11 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
