Is Pacific Current Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Pacific Current Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Pacific Current Group 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Pacific Current Group 's P/E ratio
Pacific Current Group 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Pacific Current Group shares trade at around 20x 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.

Pacific Current Group 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $24.8 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Pacific Current Group 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Pacific Current Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.79% of net profits
Recently Pacific Current Group has paid out, on average, around 1.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pacific Current Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pacific Current Group 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.36 per share.
While Pacific Current Group 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Pacific Current Group is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Pacific Current Group 's shares ever split?
Pacific Current Group 's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 4 July 1989. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Pacific Current Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pacific Current Group shares which in turn could have impacted Pacific Current Group 's share price.
Pacific Current Group share price volatility
