Is NRW Holdings under- or over-valued?
Valuing NRW Holdings stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NRW Holdings 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NRW Holdings 's P/E ratio
NRW Holdings '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, NRW Holdings 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.
NRW Holdings 's EBITDA
NRW Holdings 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $224 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a NRW Holdings 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

NRW Holdings share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 47.22% of net profits
Recently NRW Holdings has paid out, on average, around 47.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NRW Holdings shareholders could enjoy a 3.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NRW Holdings 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.08 per share.
While NRW Holdings 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that NRW Holdings 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 27 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
NRW Holdings share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while NRW Holdings 's is 2.1429. This would suggest that NRW Holdings 's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
