Is Pental under- or over-valued?
Valuing Pental stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Pental 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Pental 's P/E ratio
Pental 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Pental shares trade at around 10x 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.
Pental 's EBITDA
Pental 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $11.3 million (£6 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Pental 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$125.4 million|
|Operating margin TTM||6.5%|
|Gross profit TTM||$41.4 million|
|Return on assets TTM||6.46%|

Pental share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 65% of net profits
Recently Pental has paid out, on average, around 65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pental shareholders could enjoy a 6.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pental 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.026 per share.
Pental '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 2 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Pental 's shares ever split?
Pental 's shares were split on a 1:15 basis on 23 November 2014. So if you had owned 15 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Pental shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pental shares which in turn could have impacted Pental 's share price.
Pental share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Pental 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.3379 up to $0.472. 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 Pental 's is 0.1231. This would suggest that Pental 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
