Is Plato Income Maximiser under- or over-valued?
Valuing Plato Income Maximiser stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Plato Income Maximiser 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Plato Income Maximiser 's P/E ratio
Plato Income Maximiser 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Plato Income Maximiser shares trade at around 21x 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.

Plato Income Maximiser share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 26.67% of net profits
Recently Plato Income Maximiser has paid out, on average, around 26.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.4% of the current stock value.

In Plato Income Maximiser 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.05 per share.
While Plato Income Maximiser 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Plato Income Maximiser 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 12 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
