Is GLG Corp under- or over-valued?
Valuing GLG Corp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GLG Corp 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
GLG Corp 's P/E ratio
GLG Corp 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, GLG Corp shares trade at around 6x 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.
GLG Corp 's EBITDA
GLG Corp 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.1 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a GLG Corp 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

GLG Corp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 42.62% of net profits
Recently GLG Corp has paid out, on average, around 42.62% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.28% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GLG Corp shareholders could enjoy a 10.28% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GLG Corp 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.02 per share.
While GLG Corp 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that GLG Corp 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 16 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
GLG Corp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, GLG Corp 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.1104 up to $0.5426. 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 GLG Corp 's is -0.041. This would suggest that GLG Corp 's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, GLG Corp has bucked the trend.
