Is Objective Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Objective Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Objective Corporation 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Objective Corporation 's P/E ratio
Objective Corporation 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 104x. In other words, Objective Corporation shares trade at around 104x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Objective Corporation 's EBITDA
Objective Corporation 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $15.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Objective Corporation 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Objective Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 43.1% of net profits
Recently Objective Corporation has paid out, on average, around 43.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.57% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Objective Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Objective Corporation 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.07 per share.
While Objective Corporation 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Objective Corporation 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 7 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Objective Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Objective Corporation 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.05 up to $12.5. 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 Objective Corporation 's is 0.5873. This would suggest that Objective Corporation 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
