Is FSA Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing FSA Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of FSA Group 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
FSA Group 's P/E ratio
FSA 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 8x. In other words, FSA Group shares trade at around 8x 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.

FSA Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 43.33% of net profits
Recently FSA Group has paid out, on average, around 43.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FSA Group shareholders could enjoy a 6.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FSA Group 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.065 per share.
While FSA Group 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that FSA Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have FSA Group 's shares ever split?
FSA Group 's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 30 June 2002. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your FSA Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for FSA Group shares which in turn could have impacted FSA Group 's share price.
FSA Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, FSA Group 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.9213 up to $1.215. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while FSA Group 's is 0.8055. This would suggest that FSA Group 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
