Is Reckon under- or over-valued?
Valuing Reckon stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Reckon 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Reckon 's P/E ratio
Reckon 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Reckon shares trade at around 11x 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.
Reckon 's EBITDA
Reckon 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $14.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Reckon 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$75.6 million|

Reckon share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.25% of net profits
Recently Reckon has paid out, on average, around 1.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Reckon shareholders could enjoy a 5.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Reckon 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.05 per share.
While Reckon 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Reckon is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
