Is GPT Group under- or over-valued?

Valuing GPT Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GPT Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

GPT Group's P/E ratio

GPT 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 10x. In other words, GPT Group shares trade at around 10x 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.

GPT Group's PEG ratio

GPT Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.25. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into GPT Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

GPT Group's EBITDA

GPT Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $428.2 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a GPT Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

GPT Group's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like GPT Group.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

GPT Group's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 14.82

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and GPT Group's overall score of 14.82 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like GPT Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

GPT Group's environmental score

Environmental score: 4.47/100

GPT Group's environmental score of 4.47 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that GPT Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

GPT Group's social score

Social score: 5.18/100

GPT Group's social score of 5.18 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that GPT Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

GPT Group's governance score

Governance score: 6.68/100

GPT Group's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that GPT Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

GPT Group's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. GPT Group scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that GPT Group has managed to keep its nose clean.

GPT Group share dividends

48%

Dividend payout ratio: 48.18% of net profits

Recently GPT Group has paid out, on average, around 48.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GPT Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GPT Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.265 per share.

While GPT Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that GPT 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 17 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have GPT Group's shares ever split?

GPT Group's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 11 May 2010. 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 GPT Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for GPT Group shares which in turn could have impacted GPT Group's share price.

GPT Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, GPT Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.8583 up to $5.59. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GPT.AU volatility(beta: 0.84)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while GPT Group's is 0.843. This would suggest that GPT Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
