Is it a good time to buy Mortgage Choice stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Mortgage Choice under- or over-valued?

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

Mortgage Choice 's P/E ratio

Mortgage Choice 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Mortgage Choice shares trade at around 15x 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.

Mortgage Choice 's EBITDA

Mortgage Choice 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $14.1 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Mortgage Choice 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Operating margin TTM 7.4%
Gross profit TTM $44 million

Return on equity TTM 10.85%
Profit margin 5.13%
Book value 0.721
Market capitalisation $145 million

TTM: trailing 12 months

Mortgage Choice share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 150% of net profits

Recently Mortgage Choice has paid out, on average, around 150% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mortgage Choice shareholders could enjoy a 6.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mortgage Choice 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.075 per share.

Mortgage Choice '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 24 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Mortgage Choice share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mortgage Choice 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.4615 up to $1.6666. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MOC.AU volatility(beta: 0.83)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 Mortgage Choice 's is 0.8261. This would suggest that Mortgage Choice 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
