Is Freedom Foods Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Freedom Foods Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Freedom Foods Group 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Freedom Foods Group 's P/E ratio
Freedom Foods Group 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 63x. In other words, Freedom Foods Group shares trade at around 63x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Freedom Foods Group 's EBITDA

Freedom Foods Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 275% of net profits
Recently Freedom Foods Group has paid out, on average, around 275% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Freedom Foods Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Freedom Foods Group 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.07 per share.
Freedom Foods Group '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 25 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Freedom Foods Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Freedom Foods Group 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.75 up to $5.85. 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 Freedom Foods Group 's is 0.1521. This would suggest that Freedom Foods Group 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
