Is Hansen Technologies under- or over-valued?

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

Hansen Technologies 's P/E ratio

Hansen Technologies 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Hansen Technologies shares trade at around 19x 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.

Hansen Technologies 's EBITDA

Hansen Technologies 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $83 million (£0.0 million).

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

Hansen Technologies share dividends

36%

Dividend payout ratio: 35.71% of net profits

Recently Hansen Technologies has paid out, on average, around 35.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hansen Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 1.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hansen Technologies 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.1 per share.

While Hansen Technologies 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Hansen Technologies 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 26 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Hansen Technologies 's shares ever split?

Hansen Technologies 's shares were split on 15 June 2008.
