Is Pact Group Holdings under- or over-valued?

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

Pact Group Holdings 's P/E ratio

Pact Group 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 9x. In other words, Pact Group Holdings shares trade at around 9x 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.

Pact Group Holdings 's EBITDA

Pact Group Holdings 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $236 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Pact Group Holdings 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Pact Group Holdings share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 11.54% of net profits

Recently Pact Group Holdings has paid out, on average, around 11.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pact Group Holdings shareholders could enjoy a 1.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pact Group Holdings 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.03 per share.

While Pact Group Holdings 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Pact Group Holdings is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Pact Group Holdings share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Pact Group Holdings 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.255 up to $2.92. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PGH.AU volatility(beta: 1.31)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 Pact Group Holdings 's is 1.3128. This would suggest that Pact Group Holdings 's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
