Is it a good time to buy Engenco stock?
The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.
Is Engenco under- or over-valued?
Valuing Engenco stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Engenco 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Engenco 's P/E ratio
Engenco '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, Engenco 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.
Engenco 's EBITDA
Engenco 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $14.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Engenco 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Engenco share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 46.73% of net profits
Recently Engenco has paid out, on average, around 46.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Engenco shareholders could enjoy a 3.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Engenco 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.02 per share.
While Engenco 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Engenco 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 6 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Engenco 's shares ever split?
Engenco 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 10 November 2011. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Engenco shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Engenco shares which in turn could have impacted Engenco 's share price.
Engenco share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Engenco 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.38 up to $0.67. 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 Engenco 's is 1.0542. This would suggest that Engenco '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).
