Is Ingenia Communities under- or over-valued?

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

Ingenia Communities's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 37x. In other words, Ingenia Communities shares trade at around 37x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Ingenia Communities's EBITDA

Ingenia Communities's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $94.8 million (£0.0 million).

Ingenia Communities share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 97.28% of net profits

Recently Ingenia Communities has paid out, on average, around 97.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ingenia Communities shareholders could enjoy a 2.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ingenia Communities's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.09 per share.

Ingenia Communities'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 20 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ingenia Communities's shares ever split?

Ingenia Communities's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 18 November 2015. So if you had owned 6 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 Ingenia Communities shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ingenia Communities shares which in turn could have impacted Ingenia Communities's share price.

Ingenia Communities share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ingenia Communities's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.67 up to $5.28. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

INA.AU volatility(beta: 0.69)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 Ingenia Communities's is 0.6934. This would suggest that Ingenia Communities's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
