Is MyState under- or over-valued?

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

MyState's P/E ratio

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

MyState share dividends

65%

Dividend payout ratio: 64.91% of net profits

Recently MyState has paid out, on average, around 64.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), MyState shareholders could enjoy a 5.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In MyState's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.255 per share.

MyState'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 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

MyState share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MyState's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.1054 up to $5.37. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MYS.AU volatility(beta: 0.82)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 MyState's is 0.8198. This would suggest that MyState's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
