Is People Infrastructure under- or over-valued?
Valuing People Infrastructure stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of People Infrastructure 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
People Infrastructure 's P/E ratio
People Infrastructure 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, People Infrastructure shares trade at around 16x 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.
People Infrastructure 's EBITDA

People Infrastructure share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 42.5% of net profits
Recently People Infrastructure has paid out, on average, around 42.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), People Infrastructure shareholders could enjoy a 2.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In People Infrastructure 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.09 per share.
While People Infrastructure 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that People Infrastructure 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 6 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
People Infrastructure share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, People Infrastructure 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.9 up to $3.9. 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 People Infrastructure 's is 2.3413. This would suggest that People Infrastructure 's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
