Is Regis Healthcare under- or over-valued?

Valuing Regis Healthcare stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Regis Healthcare 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Regis Healthcare 's P/E ratio

Regis Healthcare 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 231x. In other words, Regis Healthcare shares trade at around 231x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Regis Healthcare 's PEG ratio

Regis Healthcare 's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.62. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Regis Healthcare 's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Regis Healthcare 's EBITDA

Regis Healthcare 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $92.6 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Regis Healthcare 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Regis Healthcare share dividends

44%

Dividend payout ratio: 44.15% of net profits

Recently Regis Healthcare has paid out, on average, around 44.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Regis Healthcare shareholders could enjoy a 0.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Regis Healthcare 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.02 per share.

While Regis Healthcare 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Regis Healthcare 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 9 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Regis Healthcare share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Regis Healthcare 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.9157 up to $2.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

REG.AU volatility(beta: 1.84)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Regis Healthcare 's is 1.8381. This would suggest that Regis Healthcare 's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
