Is Liberty Financial Group under- or over-valued?

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

Liberty Financial Group's P/E ratio

Liberty Financial Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Liberty Financial Group shares trade at around 11x 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.

Liberty Financial Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 31.29% of net profits

Recently Liberty Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 31.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Liberty Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 7.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Liberty Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.244 per share.

While Liberty Financial Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Liberty Financial Group 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 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
