Is ECP Emerging Growth under- or over-valued?
Valuing ECP Emerging Growth stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ECP Emerging Growth 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ECP Emerging Growth 's P/E ratio
ECP Emerging Growth 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, ECP Emerging Growth shares trade at around 12x 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.

ECP Emerging Growth share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 34.65% of net profits
Recently ECP Emerging Growth has paid out, on average, around 34.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.99% of the current stock value.

In ECP Emerging Growth 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.01 per share.
While ECP Emerging Growth 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ECP Emerging Growth may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
