Is EBOS Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing EBOS Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EBOS Group 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
EBOS Group 's P/E ratio
EBOS Group 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, EBOS Group shares trade at around 32x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14).
EBOS Group 's PEG ratio
EBOS Group 's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.2937. 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 EBOS Group 's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
EBOS Group 's EBITDA
EBOS Group 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $320.5 million (£0.0 million).

EBOS Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 59.95% of net profits
Recently EBOS Group has paid out, on average, around 59.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EBOS Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EBOS Group 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.823 per share.
EBOS Group '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 8 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
EBOS Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, EBOS Group 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.9336 up to $40.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while EBOS Group 's is 0.338. This would suggest that EBOS Group 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
