Is FFI Holdings under- or over-valued?
Valuing FFI Holdings stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of FFI Holdings 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
FFI Holdings 's P/E ratio
FFI Holdings 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, FFI Holdings shares trade at around 18x 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.
FFI Holdings 's EBITDA
FFI Holdings 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $5.2 million.

FFI Holdings share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 75% of net profits
Recently FFI Holdings has paid out, on average, around 75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FFI Holdings shareholders could enjoy a 4.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FFI Holdings 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.24 per share.
FFI 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 13 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
FFI Holdings share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, FFI Holdings 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.47 up to $5.9. 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 FFI Holdings 's is 0.0388. This would suggest that FFI Holdings 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
