Is Premier Investments under- or over-valued?
Valuing Premier Investments stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Premier Investments's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Premier Investments's P/E ratio
Premier Investments's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Premier Investments shares trade at around 26x 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.
Premier Investments's EBITDA
Premier Investments's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $259.4 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Premier Investments's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Premier Investments share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 55.56% of net profits
Recently Premier Investments has paid out, on average, around 55.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Premier Investments shareholders could enjoy a 3.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Premier Investments's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.72 per share.
Premier Investments'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 6 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Premier Investments's shares ever split?
Premier Investments's shares were split on 18 December 1989.
Premier Investments share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Premier Investments's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.8463 up to $23.8718. 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 Premier Investments's is 1.0669. This would suggest that Premier Investments's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
