Is ICS Global under- or over-valued?

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

ICS Global 's P/E ratio

ICS Global 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, ICS Global shares trade at around 20x 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.

ICS Global 's EBITDA

ICS Global 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.4 million.

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

ICS Global share dividends

12%

Dividend payout ratio: 11.75% of net profits

Recently ICS Global has paid out, on average, around 11.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 75.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ICS Global shareholders could enjoy a 75.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ICS Global 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.045 per share.

While ICS Global 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ICS Global is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ICS Global 's shares ever split?

ICS Global 's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 23 November 2014. So if you had owned 20 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 ICS Global shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for ICS Global shares which in turn could have impacted ICS Global 's share price.

ICS Global share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ICS Global 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.4795 up to $2.19. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ICS.AU volatility(beta: 1.24)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 ICS Global 's is 1.2415. This would suggest that ICS Global 's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
