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 13x. In other words, Engenco shares trade at around 13x 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 $8.2 million (£0.0 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

50%

Dividend payout ratio: 50% of net profits

Recently Engenco has paid out, on average, around 50% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.17% 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 4.17% 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.

Engenco '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 September 2021 (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 $0.43 up to $0.6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EGN.AU volatility(beta: 0.68)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

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 0.6802. This would suggest that Engenco 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
