Is Goodman Group under- or over-valued?

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.

Goodman Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 46.15% of net profits

Recently Goodman Group has paid out, on average, around 46.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Goodman Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Goodman Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.3 per share.

While Goodman Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Goodman 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 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Goodman Group's shares ever split?

Goodman Group's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 3 April 2012. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Goodman Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Goodman Group shares which in turn could have impacted Goodman Group's share price.

Goodman Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Goodman Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.2538 up to $23.8. 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 Goodman Group's is 0.4854. This would suggest that Goodman Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
