Is Laserbond under- or over-valued?
Valuing Laserbond stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Laserbond 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Laserbond 's P/E ratio
Laserbond 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Laserbond shares trade at around 21x 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.
Laserbond 's EBITDA
Laserbond 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Laserbond 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$22.2 million|
|Operating margin TTM||15.97%|
|Gross profit TTM||$11.3 million|
|Return on assets TTM||11.07%|
|Return on equity TTM||25.16%|
|Market capitalisation||$57.4 million|

Laserbond share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 36.67% of net profits
Recently Laserbond has paid out, on average, around 36.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Laserbond shareholders could enjoy a 2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Laserbond 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.01 per share.
While Laserbond 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Laserbond may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Laserbond share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Laserbond 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.225 up to $0.7848. 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 Laserbond 's is 0.2829. This would suggest that Laserbond 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
