Is Evolution Mining under- or over-valued?
Valuing Evolution Mining stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Evolution Mining's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Evolution Mining's P/E ratio
Evolution Mining's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Evolution Mining shares trade at around 22x 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.
Evolution Mining's EBITDA

Evolution Mining share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 100% of net profits
Recently Evolution Mining has paid out, on average, around 100% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Evolution Mining shareholders could enjoy a 2.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Evolution Mining's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.16 per share.
Evolution Mining'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 28 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Evolution Mining's shares ever split?
Evolution Mining's shares were split on 21 March 2010.
Evolution Mining share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Evolution Mining's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.79 up to $6.3752. 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 Evolution Mining's is -0.1023. This would suggest that Evolution Mining's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Evolution Mining has bucked the trend.
