Is Healthia under- or over-valued?
Valuing Healthia stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Healthia 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Healthia 's P/E ratio
Healthia 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Healthia shares trade at around 24x 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.
Healthia 's EBITDA
Healthia 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $7.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Healthia 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$87.2 million|
|Operating margin TTM||5.52%|
|Gross profit TTM||$22.9 million|
|Return on assets TTM||2.84%|
|Return on equity TTM||9.45%|
|Market capitalisation||$65.3 million|

Healthia share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 75% of net profits
Recently Healthia has paid out, on average, around 75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Healthia shareholders could enjoy a 1.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Healthia 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.02 per share.
Healthia 's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Healthia share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Healthia 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.48 up to $1.33. 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 Healthia 's is 1.9836. This would suggest that Healthia 's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
