Is Insignia Financial under- or over-valued?
Valuing Insignia Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Insignia Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Insignia Financial's P/E ratio
Insignia Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 27x. In other words, Insignia Financial shares trade at around 27x 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.
Insignia Financial's EBITDA
Insignia Financial's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $291.1 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Insignia Financial's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Insignia Financial share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 3306.17% of net profits
Recently Insignia Financial has paid out, on average, around 3306.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.57% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Insignia Financial shareholders could enjoy a 8.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Insignia Financial's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.186 per share.
Insignia Financial'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 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Insignia Financial's shares ever split?
Insignia Financial's shares were split on a 709:653 basis on 2 September 2020. So if you had owned 653 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 709 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Insignia Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 7.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Insignia Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Insignia Financial's share price.
Insignia Financial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Insignia Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.99 up to $3.6048. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Insignia Financial's is 1.63. This would suggest that Insignia Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
