Is OptiComm under- or over-valued?
Valuing OptiComm stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of OptiComm 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
OptiComm 's P/E ratio
OptiComm 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, OptiComm shares trade at around 32x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14).
OptiComm 's EBITDA
OptiComm 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $37 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a OptiComm 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

OptiComm share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 64.76% of net profits
Recently OptiComm has paid out, on average, around 64.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), OptiComm shareholders could enjoy a 1.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In OptiComm 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.07 per share.
OptiComm '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 25 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
