Is EQT Holdings under- or over-valued?
Valuing EQT Holdings stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EQT Holdings 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

EQT Holdings share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 97.83% of net profits
Recently EQT Holdings has paid out, on average, around 97.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EQT Holdings shareholders could enjoy a 3.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EQT Holdings 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.86 per share.
EQT Holdings '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 6 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
