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 29x. In other words, FFI Holdings shares trade at around 29x 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 $3.3 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a FFI Holdings 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

FFI Holdings share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 2.5% of net profits
Recently FFI Holdings has paid out, on average, around 2.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.26% 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 4.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FFI Holdings 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.1 per share.
While FFI Holdings 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that FFI Holdings is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
FFI Holdings share price volatility
