Is Pepper Money under- or over-valued?
Valuing Pepper Money stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Pepper Money's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Pepper Money's P/E ratio
Pepper Money's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Pepper Money shares trade at around 1x 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.

Pepper Money share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 30% of net profits
Recently Pepper Money has paid out, on average, around 30% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pepper Money shareholders could enjoy a 7.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pepper Money's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.09 per share.
While Pepper Money's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Pepper Money 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 14 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
