Is Kina Securities under- or over-valued?
Valuing Kina Securities stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kina Securities 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kina Securities 's P/E ratio
Kina Securities 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Kina Securities shares trade at around 4x 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.

Kina Securities share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 60.1% of net profits
Recently Kina Securities has paid out, on average, around 60.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 13.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kina Securities shareholders could enjoy a 13.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kina Securities 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.258 per share.
Kina Securities '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 6 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Kina Securities share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Kina Securities 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.6698 up to $0.8102. 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 Kina Securities 's is 0.638. This would suggest that Kina Securities 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
